[sword-devel] Creation of commentary using osis..

Hi again,

I am continuing to attempt to create a sword module using OSIS and have 
hit another annoyance.

I have been using a sed script to auto convert bible reference into the 

<reference osisRef="Ephesians.1.1">Ephesians 1:1</reference>

and then when I run osis2mod, and preview it in BibleTime, I can hover 
my mouse over the bible references and it'll show me the bible verse for 
the default bible.  This has all been going well, but recently I decided 
to try the modules on my friends Mac using macsword, and on my linux box 
using gnomesword2.

In macsword, placing the mouse over the bible verse pops up a windows 
showing the text for that passage, but the COMMENTARY text, and not the 
BIBLICAL text. (the biblical text being what people would rather be doing)

In gnomesword2 (2.2.1) the bible verse shows up as a hyperlink, but when 
clicking on it, the preview doesn't switch to the verse??

I have not seen what the windows version does yet .. Any comment on 
these errors?  Am I referencing verses incorrectly?

The modules & osis.xml file are in the zip file at:
