I'm sure Graham will know but it is 'probably ' to do with the
warning/note box construction coming immediately after the Node
without anything in between.

Did you check the CG to see if we mention anything like this - there
are some formatting 'known issues' in that where HTML and PDF don't
always play in the same way.



Nothing in the CG I can see.  I think the simplest fix is probably to
put a forced new line after the heading.  This avoids the problem.
See the attached.  I could make a patch with these line breaks
included if you want?

Would the following patch help?


diff --git a/tex/texinfo.tex b/tex/texinfo.tex
index 9140826..b3d1412 100644
--- a/tex/texinfo.tex
+++ b/tex/texinfo.tex
@@ -6038,6 +6038,7 @@ end

+  \ifvmode\the\everypar\fi % trigger headers
  \ifhmode\par\fi  % can't be in the midst of a paragraph.
  \lskip=\leftskip \rskip=\rightskip

I edited the texinfo.tex file in src/tex and recreated the LM. No difference.
