many thanks an excellent bug report!

yes, I need to spend a little more time (about a week worth of time I
suspect) to finish the html diversion modifications. They are mostly
working but references and IP are still broken (in my Sandbox copy).
Once done I'd be surprised if the bug reported above remains.

Not yet - I think the solution is to create another class of html-tag
which is used by groff macro-sets (tmac.www) to effectively shutdown a
paragraph before the <dl> is emitted.

ah ha - grohtml can detect reference citations so it should
detect these as well.. a bug :-(
