[sword-devel] markup within ThML <div></div> not interpreted: bug or design flaw?

	The problem is also in the OSIS filters. Both for the web and for  
BibleCS. I notice that <divineName>Lord</divineName> is not being  
rendered properly, like it is elsewhere. I think this is a bug.
	I'd be glad to fix it if someone can narrow down where the problem  
might be. I'm still learning my way around the C++ code.
