I have entered an issue into Jira against BibleCS. Here is the text I 

When two or more verses are marked in OSIS with a single verse tag, such 
as <verse osisID="gen.1.1 gen.1.2" n="1,2">...</verse> the rendering of 
the text by any client should indicate both 1 and 2. Of course part of 
the problem is that osis2mod strips the verse elements and presents just 
the content.

1,2 In the beginning....
1-2 In the beginning....

It might be acceptable to require and show the content of the n 
attribute. Or perhaps show the content of n if present, otherwise use a 
programmatic form.

Logic may well be bypassed at such a moment. (This applies both to the previous problem of poor encoding and to the presentational problem of BibleCS and BibleTime.) Gnomesowrd's version of showing linked verses is just plain ugly - but not half as damaging.
