This is a bit late, but I have just found something odd for which I have 
no explanation.

Due to the way some Python modules handle XML, non-ascii characters may 
be converted to the form &#xxxx; where xxxx is a decimal unicode 
character. Such characters, such as Hebrew letters, do not appear in 
diatheke output. They also do not show in Xiphos. They *do* appear in 
BibleDesktop which uses jsword.

A Python program to convert all such characters to actual UTF-8 Hebrew 
solves the problem. (I do use the -N option in osis2mod.)

Related to this, I have noticed for a long time that some other 
characters such as curly quotes also do not appear in diatheke or Xiphos.

Obviously, some characters *cannot* appear in xml because they have 
syntactical meaning in xml. Thus they must use the &#xxxx; format or 
other escape method. So how should they be handled so osis2mod works 
with them.

Advice? Comments? Could this be something that could be fixed in Sword?
