I presume that you file is well-formed XML and valid OSIS. That is not
what this warning is about.
When ever it complains that a particular verse, in isolation, is not
well formed, it is saying that the verse has a begin tag without a
matching end tag or an end tag without a corresponding being tag.
This warning serves to indicate that the verse will have problems
displaying in some front-ends.
If you can provide me, privately if needed, with the text to Rom 3,
I'll be able to pinpoint it.
We have identified a bunch of changes to osis2mod and I think one of
them will make this warning go away.
