The original output was buggy, as it didn't play well with \item that
cointained multiple paragraphs. So we start paragraph explicitly for
each \item now.

You can remove the spacing using the following configuration file:

\Preamble{xhtml}
\Css{li p:first-child{margin-bottom:0}}
\begin{document}
\EndPreamble
