If I make new paragraph with: <DD><P ALIGN=JUSTIFY> it's wrong. It should make a paragraph, which has first line intended (i'm not sure, if it is the right word) and the text aligned to both edges. Neither of those two effects appear.
The entire content of <DD> is indented in WindowsNT. I believe this is correct; I haven't found anything to the contrary. Could you please be more specific about the rendering in Linux? The text justification doesn't work--I'm marking this as "4.xP" and changing the summary to reflect the problem. I hope there is no problem with these changes?

Summary: [4.xP] justified paragraphs → [4.xP] indenting <DD> without an enclosing <DL> is wrong
Text justification problem is a duplicate of bug 588. I disagree with firstname.lastname@example.org; in my opinion <DD> should not be indented if it isn't enclosed in a <DL>. They should probably behave more like <LI> without <UL>/<OL>. IE5 and Nav4.x does not indent (the entire) <DD> when it's not within a <DL>. Changing summary to reflect <DD> indentation problem instead of justification.
I see your point, but should Mozilla encourage or discourage this practice? MSIE stopped indenting the whole paragraph only with version 4.0 -- 2.0 and 3.0 behave like Mozilla does now, as do Mosaic 3.0, Amaya 2.1, and Opera 3.6 (I just tested them all.) Is <DD> for indentation widely used? This is my first encounter. Certainly this interpretation is not widely supported. Maybe this issue should be taken up by the layout newsgroup as well...
This document is well formed. The problem is in layout. Reassigning to buster.
seems like there are two problems reported here, one having to do with text justification and one having to do with the interpretation of DD. The text justification is the more ijmportant problem so let's tackle that here. Adding [TEXT] M15.
Bug 5119 dealt with a similar issue, but the HTML was coded in a slightly different manner. Do we want to go down this path further and implement this variation as well? Personally, I say there's bigger fish to fry than this one.
Bulk moving [testcase] code to new testcase keyword. Sorry for the spam!
Setting the keyword all open [4.xp] bugs to 4xp.

Is DD without an enclosing DL even valid HTML? Low priority if bad HTML. How common is this practice? If invalid, recommend marking FUTURE unless extremely widespread on the web.
It's not valid HTML. However, it *may* be easy to fix in the quirks-mode html.css file (at the cost of a little performance, as is everything in any html.css file). It would probably be similar to the solution for bug 1049. I might have a chance to figure out the necessary rules sometime in the future.

based on Eric's comments... This bug has been marked "future" because we have determined that it is not critical for netscape6.0. If you feel this is an error, or if it blocks your work in some way -- please attach your concern to the bug for reconsideration.
Target Milestone: M19 → Future
I would strongly recommend marking this WONTFIX, not Future.
