Webscraping of <dl> <dt> <dd> html tags using RVEST

Hi everyone,

I am looking to scrape some data of a second hand car platform using rvest. More specifically I would like to store the car features which I find next to a < dd > tag in the html script in a data frame.

However I don't succeed in scraping the content of the < dd > tag. I would expect simply using the html_nodes() function would do the trick, but apparently it doesn't (or I am using the wrong css/xpath).

For example I would like to store in a data frame below features of following ad:

Merk Mercedes-Benz
Model SLK 200
Advertentienummer 620207
Bouwjaar 2006

Thank you in advance for your help.
