Several comments:

* After doing mod2vpl on Kjv2006, a hex viewer showed these to have an 
extra character: an 0xC2 before the ¶

* Which will the final Kjv2006 have? <lg> or <milestone type=\"x-p\" 

* Can the paragraph tag be at the end of the previous verse, rather 
than the beginning of the verse? This is how the GBF <CM> tag and the 
NET's "double milestone" is done (see below). LcdBible geneates the 
RTF superscript verse number at the start of the verse, so Ps 23 is 
rendered as:

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.2 He maketh me to lie down 
in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He 
restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his 
name's sake.4 Yea,

and Gen 1 is rendered:
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.2 And the 
earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of 
the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.3
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.4 And God saw 
the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the 
darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called 
Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. 6
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and 
let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the 
firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from 
the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.8 And God 
called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the 
second day. 9
And God said,

I can fuss with the code to rectify this, but wanted to check if the 
markup can be done similarly to GBF <CM>. Also, the NET Bible seems to 
use <milestone type="line" /><milestone type="line" /> (or <milestone 
type="line" /> <milestone type="line" />) at the end of the verse that 
completes a paragraph, rather than the start of the verse that starts 
a paragraph. The ESV doesn't seem to have paragraph markup.
