There is another problem in the locale handling. When throwing a draft of a 
latin locale (Vulgata) together, I found out that

Ad Corinthios II

And the like will not work because the "II" will be parsed as a chapter 
designation (roman number). Would be nice if the parser could be changed to 
support this kind of bookname, which might occur in other languages too.

Thanks for considering.
