This is perfectly valid OSIS.
Just a wild guess that the <p>...</p> is causing the note to be rendered
IMHO, having the entire note surrounded by <p> is unnecessary and
probably will introduce unwanted whitespace.

The KJV preserved the type attribute from the previous edition. There
were no "n" attributes, so none were created.

Actually, this is a "magic" value created by the Sword engine. It is set
to 'x' if it the type is a cross-reference and 'n' otherwise.

BTW, in OSIS (and I think that it got it from TEI), the n attribute is
used for the "number" to be shown. It could be something other than
digits. Sword does not look at the value, but manufactures it's own.
JSword uses it if present, creating it's own when not.

In looking at some of the Sword engine for OSIS, I don't think
type="study" will change anything.
Hope this helps,
