Indeed.  I was just getting my project kicked off based on the KJV2003
when I noticed some problems with the Strong's number markup in the OT.
I don't really want to delay my project, but if KJV2006 is less than a
few months away, I can wait.

Really, I don't think the connective words like "And the" should be
included as part of the Strong's number.  They should be outside.

I've noticed some verses have the first word not surrounded by
appropriate tags giving the strongs number, yet other words are labelled
as "NIH" which is very convenient.  Could we have all words put inside
tags like that for easier parsing?


          It's not true unless it makes you laugh,                           
     but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
