I don't know if we are talking about the same thing but...

John 1:1: In {<1722>} the beginning {<746>} was {<2258>} the Word {<3056>},
and {<2532>} the Word {<3056>} was {<2258>} with {<4314>} God {<2316>}, and
{<2532>} the Word {<3056>} was {<2258>} God {<2316>}.(KJV)

John 1:1: <w src="16" lemma="x-Strongs:G3588"  wn="001"></w><w src="11"
lemma="x-Strongs:G3588"  wn="002"></w><w src="7" lemma="x-Strongs:G3588"
wn="003"></w><w src="4" lemma="x-Strongs:G3588"  wn="004"></w><w src="1"
lemma="x-Strongs:G1722"  wn="005">In</w> <w src="2"
wn="006">the beginning</w

KJV2003 has the Strong's numbers of the Greek definite articles in the
beginning. (Note the pun. Actually they may be also in the end of a
verse.) That means that e.g. BibleTime cannot show the Strongs, which is
of course wrong. IIRC someone told us that those articles would
automatically be put into right places when we made the mapping with the
java frontend.  Obviously that was not the case.

Is it still possible to do it automatically or should we check all the
New Testament by hand? Actually I think that manual checking would be
only good, because we could check the other mappings also. It was hard
work then but now it would be easier because most of the work is done.
