Yeah, I need to get rid of the uconv call from the script. I'll probably 
add a new argument for encoding so that it can be selected. (What you 
probably are seeing is utf-8 interpreted as cp1252 and then re-encoded 
as utf-8.)

I don't really know what the last 33 0's are, but the first 39 1's are 
the OT and the next 27 are the NT. I'm pretty sure I have a list of the 
others somewhere, if it's important, but Sword can't recognize 
deuterocanonicals in OSIS anyway.
