Hi Elmar and Ingo,

I do like the idea of using <dl> for individual extension info fields, 
but I for the higher level, an unordered list containing those dl stuff 
*might* be just as cryptic in text browsers as the current tables.

My take:

1. For compact ext lists use a table (I have the additional fields, 
sorting, and zebra-rows-CSS ready and working here)

2. For the shorter detail lists (like popular or search results) use an 
<ul> with the detail infos as <li>, if possible

3. For the detail views I'd really like <dl> but *they should look like* 
Ingo's table solution which I find visually appealing but hard to grok 
as text.

Please, dear CSS wizards, do you think we could style the <dl>, <dd>, 
etc. too look as good as Ingo's solution? Any other options that look cool?


PS: I don't think the extension state should *only* be visualized by CSS 
because it's an essential information that should be visible without 
CSS. For the compact lists, I have <td class="Beta">Beta</td> which can 
be styled to look just like the state images...
