OptionFilters allow features (like titles) to be turned OFF. Without  
their entries in .confs, the features are permanently turned on.

More importantly, turning titles off is inappropriate in non-Bible  
texts. OptionFilters should basically never appear in non-Bible texts.

It looks like the code is there and changes <title> into HTML <b>.

If your <hi> code is pasted correctly, italic text is what would be  
expected. <hi> will be converted to italics by default unless  
type="bold" is specified. (Your example has no =, which means the  
whole mal-formed attribute will be ignored.)

Post some more of the context if you need more assistance. I don't  
believe that there are any bugs in Sword's or GnomeSword's handling of  
this text.
