Even so, I think my comments still stand. For consistency's sake I'd
prefer to leave ': :' to produce definition lists as it does now, and
define a new markup such as '->' to produce indented text using <div>s.
Of course, a WikiAdministrator who really wanted ': :' to produce
<div>s instead of <dl>s could then create a $DoubleBrackets entry to
convert ': :' to '->'.
