Samuel Arnet has pointed out a SEVERE problem in pasting Unicode/XML 
Westminster Leningrad Codex text into Microsoft Word. Text containing 
transcription notes (superscripted, red characters) produces 
incorrectly-ordered words when pasted into Microsoft Word.  (Example: 
Gen 34:11)  Removing the transcription note restores the ordering.  
Alternatively, use the "Simplified" mode which eliminates the 
transcription notes (and the ketib variant, chapter:verse markings).  
Strangely, this problem doesn't occur when the text is pasted into 
Mozilla Thunderbird messages.

Please report any other problems with the text.
