[sword-devel] mis-handling of OSIS <hi type="super">

There's a serious glitch in handling of <hi type="super">, evidently a
typo, or perhaps a paste-o, where <sup> opens but it is erroneously
mis-closed with </span>.

Module ABP uses "super" heavily to indicate original Greek word
ordering, superscripting word index numbers.  The repeating sequence of
controls around each word whose order has been changed is

<w><seg><hi type="super">...</hi></seg></w>

and you can see from the examples below that the result is a lot of
<sup> with a bunch of following </span> where </sup> was clearly
intended.  It makes for a really funky display in Xiphos:

I have a bug report against it, but it's manifestly not a Xiphos bug,
it's an engine error.
