Improving upon a [previous attempt](http://css-tricks.com/forums/discussion/22977/price-menu-ellipsis#Item_8 “previous attempt”), I’m building a price menu ([example](http://i.imgur.com/YAxmlCl.png “price menu”)) and wanted to link the service with a price using ellipsis.
I used _text-align: right_ and gave it a background color that is **supposed** to be covering up the ellipses in the background:
padding: 0 5px;
Despite giving the _dd_ tag with a background color a higher z-index than the ellipsis, the ellipsis are still showing up in the background. Why?
because the dd are in the same formatting context as the dt – not the absolutely positioned dt:after. So you’d need to compare dd’s z-index with that of dt’s.
Also, I don’t believe you can have a dl as a child of dl – I’d just continue to use dt/dd with a class for the subsets.
