the Special:Export function on LyricWiki. This
allows the script to run more smoothly than
previously when the pre and /pre or lyrics and
/lyrics commands do not appear.

* Bugfix: Script can now handle lyrics pages
without either the pre or the lyrics commands by
retrieving the lyrics from the Special:Export
function at LyricWiki.org. 


* Bugfix: Script now will work when lyrics appear
on LyricWiki without the pre and /pre commands.
