shock   Problems with osis2mod and Sword for Windows rendering - serious bug report
Hi!
Following advice given in this thread I've encoded part of the New Testament for Polish Bible Warszawsko-Praska. Trying hard to encode the printed original in OSIS representing all the details I've encountered some quite serious problems.

Following strong request of not posting cult material, copyrighted especially I've created neutral OSIS test file explaining all the problems I've encountered. This file is available on my web page http://panda.bg.univ.gda.pl/~krzbia/test.osis.xml .
Here I'll list all the problems found together with brief explanations

  • paragraph markers <p> and </p> placed outside of verse tags are not parsed correctly by osis2mod, that is closing tag is not included. This problem was confirmed earlier by Osk, but still it is a unsolved problem sad
  • a note containing reference spanning a fragment of text in which there is <p> and not </p> results in a popup note containing some RTF rubbish sad
  • construct <div><title>A title</title>... placed at the beginning of the chapter couses the title to be ignored sad
  • construct <div><title>1 title</title><div><title>2 title</title> on the beginning of the chapter - the '1 title' is ignored sad
  • construct <div><title>1 title</title><div><title>2 title</title><div><title>3 title</title> at the beginning of the chapter - only '3 title' is shown, and all the verses from the inner <div> are joined together as one?! sad
  • construct <div><title>1 title</title><div><title>2 title</title> in the middle of the chapter results in the titles presented in the wrong sequence sad
  • construct <div><title>1 title</title><div><title>2 title</title><div><title>3 title</title> in the middle of the chapter couses the titles to be presented in the order 3 1 2. crying
  • A notes within <title></title> are not rendered as popups but included in the title confused


All this cases are present in the test file and can be shown in the Sword.
Important! The tests I've performed were done using lates osis2mod and Sword for Windows v 1.5.8pre3.

Greetings and really looking for help.
