[sword-devel] Problem in Chinese SWORD module

I'll take care of it. The source docs don't exhibit this problem (and 
have since been updated as well).

It looks like this probably comes down to a bad traditional to 
simplified conversion, since the text exhibits no problems in the 
traditional version (which is the basis for the simplified).

If anyone has a good method of converting from traditional Chinese to 
simplified, I would appreciate suggestions. (No web converters please. I 
need something that can take a 3 meg or so file.) I'm loathe to try 
loading the Big5 text in Word or such and saving it again as GB, but if 
anyone knows that to be a reasonable route, I can.
