Thank you Michel,

I forgot to say I use only one dt-dd couple

  dd (image)
  dt (description)

Exception is when I have several picture of the same thing

  dd (image 1)
  dd (image 2)
  dd (image 3)
  dt Various steps in the making of coffee

(by the way, here, an ordering would be great, but only ol may have 
semantic order - except if one consider that hN are semantically order 
and using CSS counter make them visually ordered too)
