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.
