[sword-devel] diatheke plain output - line breaks missing?

Yes, you are correct.  Before entryAttribute searches and before lucene 
searches, the only way to search for a strongs number in the text was to 
turn on strongs number and then search for, e.g. "<1234>"  Different 
symbols were used for different parts of the text, as you have pointed 
out, which allowed one to be clever with regex.  It was inconsistent, 
and not easy for an average end user, I know, but it is how things used 
to work.  Punctuation has never been stripped to my knowledge.  Thanks 
for the walk down memory lane.
