	Just tried that, made really no difference at all.

	Perhaps I am doing something wrong... I added that exact line
just after the Encoding line in /usr/share/sword/mods.d/poraa.conf,
and then from my working directory I called mod2osis PorAA >

	Do you mean PorAA ain't neither GBF nor ThML?

	I never programmed text processing, and am not really able to
start just now.  I could probably remember my long-forgone COBOL
skills, or even find a copy of EasyTrieve Plus for MS-DOS, and do
something to either the UnBound Bible copy -- what format is that? --
or to the current outpub of mod2osis, but that will have to wait.

	On the other hand, if someone already had a valid OSIS copy to
post somewhere I could fetch, I might have something by tomorrow or
even tonight.
