Now we do need the history information in the svn repository. My latest 
attempts to fix emphasis problems have only broken things that were 
already working. I need to go back to the versions of 
lou_translateString.c lou_backTranslateString.c and transcommon.ci from 
about three months ago. Does anyone know how to do this in svn? Or 
perhaps someone has the tarball of the nest-to-last release.

When I wrote the emphasis and capitalization algorithms I was unaware of 
the requirements of many braille codes, in particular putting 
end-of-emphasis and of capitalization after the last word of a phrase, 
rather than before. The presient algorithm will have to be replaced, 
probably by an extension of the context opcode with a new emphasis 

For anyone who wants to get dizzy, the problem is in the function 
validMatch in lou-translateString.c, but it may not be limited to that
