[sword-devel] creating module add-ins

While there is documentation for creating module add-ins at
http://www.crosswire.org/sword/develop/swordmodule/index.jsp, the
information seems to be outdated and incomplete. Can someone suggest another
place to find the necessary details for creating Bible modules or make some
comments on what has been changed?

I'm able to generate module files from a source text without verse refs
using vpl2mod.  But the heading information doesn't seem to be coming
through correctly and the font size is way off. Using a source text with
verse refs hasn't worked either.

BTW, is the emptyvss utility for checking verses still around somewhere?
