Apologies, some mis-sorted email caused me not to notice this until now.

I had thought the problem you were seeing was a display issue, in which
case recent engine updates had some good effects, which is why I
suggested a more recent version...not realizing that you're a Win32
user, so all you've got is whatever came out in the latest Xiphos
release build.  (Though I'm a little surprised that your ref in the bug
report mentions 2 different versions of Sword.  Hm.)

As others said, apparently the creation tools (as distinct from the
processing engine used in apps) haven't been updated much lately, so the
problem has to be either a deeper problem in those tools, or your
encoding is what's actually in question.

If anyone else might have some insight into what he's got going on,
please see...
...in which he included screenshots of what's wrong.

Fundamentally, the problem faced is that Xiphos displays whatever the
engine hands it.  If the module is mis-constructed, or if the engine
mis-processes it, Xiphos shows it wrong...and there's nothing to be done
about it in Xiphos itself.
