Uh. That's because the <dd> tag is for denoting something as a definition in a dictionary list. <p> is for denoting a paragraph. The other people who "endlessly" use <p>? Are doing it right. You? Are doing it wrong, by using a tag in a non-descriptive way in order to gain the incidental and questionable benefit of how some browsers present the tag by default.

What you actually want is to use the <p> tag with the "text-indent" CSS style, either in a separate style sheet that gets included in your HTML or defined in each <p> tag with the "style" attribute.

And this sort of thing is probably why Gryph sticks to plain text. :-)
