Ah, gotcha.  So the xlit is an xlit of the lemma, not the actual word in 
the text?  And the xlit differs because the lexical form of the word 
differs between lexicons?  or the lexicons use different beta encoding 
schemes sometimes?  In either case, they seem to be lemma 
representations for lookups into a lexicon.  Do you think it might make 
sense to encode it like:

<w lemma="Strong:976 ANLEX:BI/BLOS" morph="Robinson:N-NSF" 

The useful and practical information is the key to the lexicons, so if 
Strong:976 can get us to the entry in the Strong's Dictionary, I'm not 
sure we need the Strong:BI/BLOS xlit of the lemma.

The last question is whether the xlit entry should be of the word as it 
appears in the text, or of the lemma.  I chose the word for mine.  What 
do you think?
