No, the text does not go through the filters. Nor does its character 
encoding ever get converted.

Sure. We would like to get everything encoded in UTF-8 and OSIS and 
using the compressed module driver. It's a little more involved than it 
sounds since we also want to update as many of the texts as possible to 
newer versions (that hopefully won't have versification or other changes 
but that might have corrections). Limiting this to just the non-UTF-8 
texts would be a good place to start.
