The problem seems to be other than what we thought. Further investigation
has shown that it was not the reference that caused the failure of OCP
to report on a word but the use of wildcards and hyphens. Our text looked
text text text text dia-
fulassoi text text text xrw-
ntai text text text.
pick words "dia* xrw*".
found both diafulassoi and xrwntai. But strangely enough, if the wild
card fell after the hyphen the words were not found, ie:
pick words "diaful* xrwn*".
pick words "diafulassoi xrwntai".
failed to report on the above mentioned instances. It should be noted
that we transcribe the Greek from TLG's 7-bit coding to Nota Bene's
8-bit coding for Greek. This results in a very long "alphabet" command
and some of the accents receive non-printing values.
We ran through our texts and CTL files time and time again,
always with the same result. I have now sent them to Oxford for testing.
