I don't want to really get into a semantic markup soapbox or start a flame
war etc. However <dl> really should not be used as you are showing. The
content is NOT even a list.

I believe the solution that Dean mentioned using

<img ../>
<p>[Caption]..</p>

Is a good coding solution since it should give you the available hooks to
implement the CSS. You could even wrap that withing a div so you can
provide further ruling in terms of positioning, floats etc.

Just my 2cents here.

I use the definition list to caption still photos. For example:

<dl>
<dt>(Image)</dt>
<dd> (Photo description)</dd>
</dl>

Would this be a acceptable way to caption the still photo for the screen
readers?
