<Default ¶ Font> vs HTML5

First experiment with converting real FM19 content to HTML 5 … first question :-}
I have a variable defined as <Default ¶ Font>, which behaves as expected in FM – it takes the font settings (colour, weight &c.) from the paragraph where it's used. Output to HTML5, the same variable sometimes matches the paragraph, sometimes doesn't. I can't offhand spot any consistency.
So – am I doing something wrong? and if so, what should I be doing instead?

Dagnammit … minutes later, an aha! moment and a sort of answer: if I select the paragraph with the first poorly-rendered variable and then apply Character format Default ¶ Font, the paragraph redraws and the variable renders correctly. So the problem must be related to copy/paste and a character format not showing up on screen. Of course, I can't check the status bar to see if there's an override warning … because I've just corrected them all. <sigh>

I find that converting to HTML5 can give show you where character tags were not applied correctly.
