By moving them, I didn't mean that a space should not be introduced 
after it. I meant that it should not be moved to follow the word that it 
is in front of.

BTW, the ESV and a couple of other modules provide the n attribute for 
the publisher provided marker. I think that SWORD should be changed to 
use it instead of *x and *n when it is present.

With the html filters, how about putting the marker in a <span>*x</span> 
to be able to grab it?
