I don't think so. HTML rendering is very forgiving of content errors  
that some other front-end may have a problem. Two quick examples,  
characters that are tolerated in HTML might me an error in XML.  
Second, HTML swallows adjacent non-markup whitespace. Other front- 
ends may not.

What we can assume is that if the sword web presents it badly, then  
there is a problem that needs to be fixed. My guess is that the sword  
web has the most recent version of the SWORD API and what shows up in  
a 1.5.8 release candidate might have already been fixed.
