[sword-devel] Translators' workarounds for Guillemets in USFM files

Some Bible translators use a workaround when editing USFM files for locations
where they would otherwise have used 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillemets Guillemets .

They sometimes type "<<" in place of "«" and ">>" in place of "»".

Likewise, they may type "<" in place of "‹" and ">" in place of "›".

Does anyone in CrossWire know whether the SFM to OSIS conversion tools
(either CrossWire's script or the Snowfall Software program) make any
attempt at recognizing this, and performing the conversion "intelligently" ?
