Log Message:
Format .Nd with more logically with <span> rather than <div>; after all, 
it is supposed to be a one-line description.  For the case where .Nd 
generates flow content (which is very bad style but syntactically
valid), rely on the new feature of html_close_paragraph() to close
out the <span> prematurely, effectively moving the flow content out
of the .Nd for HTML presentation.  For the final closing, also rely
on the new html_close_paragraph() functionality, this time triggered
by the subsequent block, which will typically be .Sh SYNOPSIS.
