It turned out to be a missing feature in the grammar. I have now implemented it, and it behaves
as expected. I had to both tinker a bit with the grammar, and resolve some abiguity afterwards
in the xsl processing (it is impossible for the tokeniser to know that a ':' at the end of
a word is *not* a term definition separator, so I had to reconnect it to the preceding text
if it was not inside an already established definition list).

Thanks for following up, it inspired me to try once more, and that fixed it :)

Ok, I will do that soon.
