With -Thtml, with or without -Ostyle=mandoc.css, a roff .br (line break)
directive is producing a large vertical space between lines.  This is
unexpected and does not occur with -Tascii/utf8.  Here is an example:

--- foo.1 ---
.TH foo 1
.IP -a
Enable a
.IP -b
Enable b
.IP -c
The following lines are expected to be single-spaced:


The lines are single-spaced as expected with -Tascii, but with -Thtml
there is a large amount of space between the lines.
.IP -d
Enable d

The missing vertical space between .IP paragraphs can be ameliorated by
removing the dl styling from the stylesheet, but I don't see an easy way
to address the extra .br spacing with the stylesheet.  Is this something
that can be addressed in mandoc?
