No, that's not required at all.

That's correct if you want to build .html translations, yes.

Probably because the message is "fuzzy" in the translation?

This only confirms my suspicion -- we started changing
<em>address@hidden</em> to &lt;address@hidden&gt; (and other minor things
like that), so when you build the .html, GNUN first updates the .pot,
and then `msgmerge's the .po.  All translations are likely to have
this string in English, because the message will be marked as "fuzzy".

Hmm.  That's not supposed to happen.  Can you check again your .po
file -- does it contain "fuzzy" messages?

Which is you po4a version you're using?  That's the only thing I can
think of right now that might be messing up the result.
