[pmwiki-users] Putting a Colon in a Definition List?

Oh my...

I have text that uses a colon which I want to put in a definition  
list (specifically in the Definition Term). The problem is, that the  
colon terminates the dt tag. The result (which is kind of  
interesting) is that the character immediately following the colon  
then appears as the first character of the dd.

So, if i were to markup the following:

	:Lions::King of the jungle cats:

The result would look something like this:

		:King of the jungle cats

As opposed to the expected:

		King of the jungle cats

This markup:

	:"Lions:":King of the jungle cats:

Would produce:

		":King of the jungle cats

I tried using the HTML entity: &58; (if your email program parses  
that in to an actual colon... I wrote "ampersand 58 semicolon") but  
it merely output the code (i.e. it literally output "&58;")

I'm at a loss of what to do. Is there anyplace where I can define  
entities? The SpecialCharactersList (http://www.pmwiki.com/wiki/ 
PmWiki/SpecialCharactersList) does not list the colon and says that  
these entities are defined in RSS.php; a file I can not find (looked  
in /scripts/).
