[sword-devel] KJV markup problem

Matthew and I were looking at what we first thought was a Xiphos display
glitch, but then we realized that KJV content has changed a good bit
from module version 2.3 to 2.4.

In Psalm 119:1, we're supposed to have an opening <title> containing
"ALEPH".  In 2.3, mod2imp shows that the opening OSIS is:

<title canonical="true" subType="x-preverse" type="section"><foreign
n="א">ALEPH.</foreign></title><w lemma="strong:H0835">Blessed</w>

2.4's opener is:

<title canonical="true" type="acrostic"><foreign
n="א">ALEPH.</foreign></title><w lemma="strong:H0835">Blessed</w>

Notice lack of
       subType="x-preverse" type="section"
having instead just

The problem in Xiphos is that 2.4's content doesn't come out as a header
at all, but is delivered from the engine as part of the verse content,
there being no pre-content at all.  Is this because KJV actually changed
(badly, it would seem) in 2.4, or has osis2mod caused trouble?
