Sensually Styled Definition Lists

Thoughts, have been simming in my head since the middle of the year 2003 when discussion on the CSS-Discuss about styling definition list (<dl>), on ways I could style a defintion list. I have come up with there examples; the first two are styled in much the manner of a table with the definition title being the left column and the defintition comprising the left column and the third is a more whimsical style.

First the example definition list that will used comes from a porition of the list of CSS Play examples.
