long dash quote
I am Bible Module. It will be in Nenets a small people groups. It can only be for my personal use because it is copyrighted.

To my surprise I actually have manged to get the first 10 verses in chapter 1 to work with both GnomeSword and Bibletime

When it comes to quotes with Nenets it not strait forward as they have letters in their alphabet which looks like the same a quote. Instead the Nenets Bible use a long dash quote ―.

In a sword manual I read you can have curly quotes by inputting the HTML value.
I tried the same with the long dash quote which I believe the xml value is &#8 213;
(note. I am leaving a gap in the middle otherwise you would see the ― insted)
so a example I tried in English is
<p>
<verse sID="Luke.1.13" osisID="Luke.1.13"/>But the angel said to him,

<q marker="&#8 213;" > Don’t be afraid, Zacharias, because your request has been heard, and your wife, Elizabeth, will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. </q>

</p>
<verse eID="Luke.1.13" osisID="Luke.1.13" />

also with the who quote
<p>

<verse sID="Luke.4.4" osisID="Luke.4.4"/>Jesus answered him,<q who="Jesus" marker="&#8 213;" > saying, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.</q><verse eID="Luke.4.4" osisID="Luke.4.4" />

</p>

with GnomeSword I get diplayed the following
" sID="q1"/> in the first example
"> in the second example

So help would be appreciated.
