This has been changed in a subsequent set of glossing macros that John  
has created. They will be combined into a new version of ExPex, but I  
don't think that's been done yet.  The glossing macros aren't yet  
publicly distributed, I'm afraid, but I'm sure that John would be  
willing to share a copy if you e-mail him.
