This is rather non-urgent... I just thought I submit it before I

* In a bigger module (like CEDICT), entries consisting of a number
  (e.g. "8") will cause Sword not to be able to browse correctly
  through the entries. For example, in a subset of the module I had
  the entries "8", "80" and "800". Sword would not let me browse
  beyond "800", also, I was not able to access any entry starting with
  "A", even by direct typing.

  Workaround: Add a space, e.g. "8 ", "80 ", "800 "

* When linking an entry, Sword will not display the last
  character. Try e.g.

  My first entry

  The definition displayed for A is (correctly) "My first entry". For
  LINK, Sword displays "My first entr".

  This is especially a problem when the entry contains markup, and the
  last character is part of markup.

  Workaround: Add a space to the definition, e.g. "My first entry "
  instead of "My first entry".

I'm not sure whether I have the time to really look into all these
issues (in the source code) after the release, but I'd be willing to
create a list of all the issues I encountered. I guess the wiki would
be the right place for that.
