Display Chapter, Book and Verse beside each verse
I'm using KJV SWORD module in the latest version of Xiphos to date.

We would like to use Xiphos to display verses as part of video production. Due to the nature of the videos, which might be broadcast, it would be best if verses could be displayed along lines of:

Mat 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
Mat 1:2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;


instead of the default...

1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;


This allows viewers tuning in at any time to know the exact location of the verse being displayed at that moment, instead of merely the obscure verse number.

How can this be accomplished? Is this configurable somewhere in an existing XML file? What needs to be done? Please advise. Input is much appreciated.

Re: Display Chapter, Book and Verse beside each verse
No, that's not possible in Xiphos. It could be added, certainly, but I'm not clear on the value. That is, Xiphos is always showing the location bar, immediately above the Bible content. This is not sufficiently obvious as indication of where the reading is?
