It used to be common for multi-volume books to be written using roman  
numerals. The parser has recognition of i, ii, iii and iv (also in  
upper case).

I'm going to take a wild guess here based on a little understanding of  
the parser.

So isa is broken into i and sa, which becomes 1 sa or 1 Samuel.

In the case of isaiah, this becomes 1 saiah and since saiah is not  
known, it goes to its default error verse.

Perhaps the parser has changed to not require a space between roman  
numerals and the following word but did before?

Hope this is not a goose chase.

In Him,
