[sword-devel] OSIS filters still cause trouble for H3068 (NASB) and divineName

We've discussed this now and again, but not since (it appears, from my
archives) July and September of 2007.  This has been a problem for a
very long time.

In the current NASB beta, there are sequences like this (example verse,
Deut 14:26):

     ...the <divineName><w lemma="strong:H3068">Lord</w>
     </divineName><w lemma="strong:H430">your God</w>...

What comes out of the engine when this verse is requested with Strong's
numbers is:

     the L<font size="-1">ORD</font> your God<small><em>&lt;
     <a href="passagestudy.jsp?action=showStrongs&type=Hebrew&value=430">

That's as determined by breakpointing Xiphos as it takes text returned
from module.RenderText() and is about to do block-rendering on it.  The
needed Strong's reference for "LORD" is missing.  It's a <divineName>-
related thing, but I don't recall the details for why it's a problem.

Visually, after block-rendering, it comes out thus...

...with there just being a hole under "LORD" that shouldn't be a hole.

I hope this glitch can be resolved.

There were also problems with UTF-8 apostrophes (U+2019) inside
<divineName>.  Was that ever resolved?
