Re: TVM information
For Greek we use Robinson codes. These are also in the KJV module and were derived from one of the Greek modules, TR I think, but am not sure. In the KJV module these look like:
<w morph="robinson:N-PRI">Abraham</w>
(I left out the other attributes)

The important thing to note about the morphology codes is that they don't give the morphology for the English, but the underlying Greek. In most places these match up.

In the NT Greek, every verse and every word should have it. Because the KJV will sometimes translate more than one word into a single word there may be multiple references as in:
<w src="10 11" lemma="strong:G3588 strong:G935" morph="robinson:T-NSM robinson:N-NSM">the king</w>

I've shown all the fields as found. The src="10 11" field indicate that this refers/translates the 10 and 11 word in the reference Greek text. lemma="strong:G3588 strong:G935" indicate that the 10th word has a Strong's number of 3588 and the 11th has 935. Likewise morph is a parallel array with the first reference being to the 10th word and the second to the 11th word.

In the KJV, sometimes a word in Greek is represented by more than one word, but there is a word in the middle:
<w src="4" lemma="strong:G1752" morph="robinson:ADV">for</w>
<w src="5" lemma="strong:G1343" morph="robinson:N-GSF">righteousness'</w> <w src="4" lemma="strong:G1752" morph="robinson:ADV" type="x-split" subType="x-13">sake</w>

type="x-split" means that this is a continuation of the prior word and subType='x-13' indicates the location of the prior part (this is where I get fuzzy: 13-th <w>?)

If you look at the BibleTool at the KJV for Matt 5:10, you can see how this plays out in that UI. When you turn on Strong's Numbers it will show the two parts as one.
