To add to what Troy said, I would really recommend trying to encode the 
Bible in OSIS. In order to encode notes, section titles, paragraphing, 
references, etc., you'll have to use some kind of markup, and OSIS is 
the markup format the Sword supports best.

What are you using as your source? The HTML files available for download 
or some other source?

Is this (everything following *Original Text*) the actual input to 
vpl2mod? (I.e., there's no other markup and those are plain (0x20) 
spaces that are being removed.)
