[sword-devel] Spelling errors in Afrikaans 53 module

How would you characterise the spelling errors?  Are the same words 
consistently mis-spelled?  Is it an issue of accented letters being 
rendered incorrectly?

In general, we won't modify the text we got from the South African Bible 
Society.  If we made mistakes in converting their text to our format, we 
will happily correct those, but if the errors are in the underlying 
text, we will not fix them.  (For these kinds of errors, you can notify 
the Bible society itself.)
