[sword-devel] osis2mod discoveries

I am working hard to get the VietNVB module in beta to be ready for
release, but persistent display problems in several of the front-ends
held it back. Here is what I discovered:
1. What DM told us about wliminating the <div type="section"> elements
worked to solve one problem.
2. Eliminating <lg> elements solved another problem similar to the one
above but showing up in Gnomesword (unlike the problem above), to my
surprise. I'm not sure if this is known (probably is but worth
repeating). It produces non-validating OSIS, but it is necessary to get
poetic material to work.
3. Compiling the module with osis2mod from version 1.5.9 solved all the
rest of the problems. By this point it was only BibleDesktop that was
affected. Headings were not displaying properly/consistently, and
sometimes multiple lines of poetry displayed on the same line with no
spaces between the "lines". See Psalm 1 in the VietNVB 1.3 in beta, and
you'll see what I mean. Verse 1 smashes several lines together, but the
rest of the psalm displays everything correctly.
I'm not sure what happened from 1.5.9 to 1.5.11 or the current SVN to
cause such problems for BibleDesktop, but these are my findings, for
what it's worth.
