DM, if you really intend below to say 'reiterates', and if I remember 
correctly, the intended OSIS tagging would be to use <catchWord> (which 
I'm not sure if SWORD supports yet) instead of <hi>, but from your 
example, I don't think "Lit." usually reiterates, but rather redefines. 
  Regardless, I think your problem is with the quote, and I would 
probably choose 2, as well.
