The issue was discussed on this last, back in Nov/Dec 2003.
Here is the message which mentions the Mozilla bug-report:


The latest Mozilla and Firefox do *not* yet have it fixed;
at least not for Macintosh --- I downloaded both yesterday.

Here's the bugzilla entry.
The status there is not yet 'fixed'.

It is acknowledged there that the strategy (as used by LaTeX2HTML)
is correct according to the HTML 4.0 (and earlier) recommendations.

Hope this helps,
