SWORDWeb seems to work fine.  I'd appreciate it if we could have 
construction fact input instead of useless statements like "it's SWORD's 
  fault".  Thanks.


Anyone willing to put the time into investigating if proper UTF-8 is 
being sent into the SWORD engine from the copy and paste from Xiphos?
