Confirmed. That problem has been totally fixed.

This always shows text that looks like it should be coded as headings.
I was wondering what BibleCS would do with blocks of verses. Do any other modules do this? I think it would work slightly better if
BibleCS positioned the text in the window so that the start of the block was always visible. Also, we could have a module.conf
setting, indicating that the text works with blocks, and in that case to highlight the block when any of the verse references from
the block are selected.

N1 definitions say "...ending it -η" instead of "...ending in -η"
V9 definitions show boxes "V9 AAS2PPart of speech: verb, progressive, εἰμί and εἰ̂μι"
What's the difference between "C" and "C X", between "D", "D DSF", and "D P", between "A1 APF" and "A1A APF" etc?
And... could you add definitions & examples to include for all the names of parts of speech etc? eg aorist, dative, dental,
genetive, middle, participle, relative...
Does anyone know of some great public domain definitions and examples?
