Thanks for the quick feedback, everyone. I'm not too familiar with
module procedures here, so please bear with me while I learn :).

I made some corrections to the config files:
- Added the copyright tags
- Changed language tags to "en" rather than "en-us" (Note: "en_us" is

2. The modules contain several tags that BibleCS doesn't understand,
   but BibleTime does, namely: h1, ..., h6, ul, li, p align="center",
   font size="+1" (They are valid ThML also, I think). Should I change
   them to suit the lowest-common denominator (e.g. change <h1> to

Have a blessed Sunday, everyone!
