It's in the text. mod2imp easily shows it.
In email I sent to bugs at crosswire.org on 15 Jan 2007, I started with
this in a report about a whole herd of module problems:
| 1. WEB has problems with missing spaces throughout the text. These
| are from just brief perusal through a couple chapters in Romans:
| rom 1:7 JesusChrist
| rom 1:17 byfaith
| rom 14:14 beunclean
| rom 14:23 therevelation forobedience
| rom 15:3 Psalm69:9 (no space; not xref'd)
| rom 15:8 tothe
| rom 15:16 theGentiles
| rom 15:18 wordand
| rom 15:24 iffirst
| rom 15:26 atJerusalem
| rom 15:27 spiritualthings
| rom 15:30 yourprayers
| rom 15:31 acceptableto
| It's everywhere. This is SwordVersionDate=2006-10-30, v1.6 (latest).
In April, there was briefly a v1.7 of WEB (and HNV) but they were pulled
from the beta repo after many other problems were found.
27 Apr 2007:
| The new WEB is using '\222' as an apostrophe. In GnomeSword, this
| displays as '?' and in WinSword/BibleCS, it simply disappears.
| See e.g. 2Peter 2:3-5,11,14,16 for "doesn't", "didn't", "man's".
29 Apr 2007:
| I know WEB was deleted from availability for now, but be aware that
| Titus is missing entirely from it, as first seen from GS failing to
| display it, and then mod2imp proving to me that it's just not there.

| No, the code is fine; the problem is within the WEB module itself
| (v1.6), as the module raw-dump tools (e.g. "mod2imp WEB") will show.
| A fix to this problem was made and the new module (v1.7) was in the
| beta area briefly, but further problems were found and 1.7 was
| withdrawn from beta, pending a more comprehensive fix.
| Oh, the John 1:39 cite is interesting. The red letter portion does
| indeed extend too far, in both 1.6 and 1.7.
