I see that "Θέλω να ξέρω" is "I want to know" and that "τι ξέρεις" is "What you know".  How does "ό" function in the sentence to come to the meaning "I want to know what you know"?

"ότι" means "that".  Example:  Έμαθα ότι έπιασες δουλειά. (I've heard that you got a job.)

"ό,τι" is one word and means "whatever" or "everything". Example:  Πάρε ό,τι θέλεις. (Take whatever you like.)

Therefore "Θέλω να ξέρω ό,τι ξέρεις" means : "I want to know everything that you know."

Thank you.  My confusion was due to a misprint, which I faithfully copied here.
