[sword-devel] Oddness in Psalms headers

The \S/ is a formatting characteristic of the NASB source, indicating 
small caps. It's presence in the module indicates an error in the module 
making (i.e. my program to create the osis from the NASB source). 
However, I think your module under cygwin is out of date, but not under 
FC7. The latest does not have any \.

That said, I checked the osis and how it is currently is still wrong. It 
is using:
L<hi type="small-caps">ord</hi>'<hi type="small-caps>s</hi>
and not

Thanks for the bug report.
