Oh. Well, that does change the numbers a bit. (And it was rather stupid 
to even encode these as "ThML" since they should have just been 
plaintext. If you look at the data, every entry has exactly one line and 
exactly one ThML tag: a <br /> at the end of the line.)

Anyway, I believe I found a nice source from which to get replacements 
for all of our glossaries (and more)--already encoded in TEI for us. 
(But given the above, I'm not sure whether this is at all necessary.)
