Hello DM Smith,

thank you for bringing your experience on the subject. Do you think that
the best source we can get to fix the technical problems in the module
is the one obtained by mod2osis? Or there is a source repository
somewhere for the SWORD project? 

I share your opinion on this matter, I just also think that most
"misspellings" are in fact just encoding errors, for instance, some "à"
have been encoded as an invalid character (and show as a blank in
gnomesword). So I think these cases should also be fixed (we will not be
changing the content, just fixing the encoding).
