From The RT System itself

The problem is with "pod2html" formatting of "=item text" entries. From
what I see, this text​:


=over 4

=item hi there

The definition of "hi there" is xyzzy.

=back


will be formatted as (minus a few extra CRs)​:

<DL>
<DT><STRONG><A NAME="item_hi">hi there</A></STRONG>
<DD><P>The definition of "hi there" is xyzzy.
</DL>

This should, from my reading of HTML, instead be formatted as​:

<DL>
<DT><STRONG><A NAME="item_hi">hi there</A></STRONG></DT>
<DD>The definition of "hi there" is xyzzy.</DD>
</DL>

In other words, there is an extra paragraph break and the DT and DD are not
closed properly. This does make a difference in the output!
