While the bug should be fixed, I can change the entity to a UTF-8 
character. The paragraph markers will be moved to the start of the 
following verse in the next beta.

There are two changes:
First, x- for the prefix on a strongs or morph is invalid OSIS. So these 
have been changed.
Second, it is valid to have more than 1 strongs or morph markup per <w> 
element. This does exist today in the KJV Gen 1.1 for the word create. 
However, today, the markup is invalid OSIS and uses | to separate them. 
The standard has whitespace separating them.

Also, it is correct for <w> to not surround any word. These would 
represent words in the original Greek that are not directly translated. 
Of course, it could also be that the Greek should be attached to a word 
but by mistake is not.
