Are you working directly in OSIS, or using USFM and then converting?
Presumably the text you are working on is the Irish ABN.

Thanks to Kahunapule Michael Johnson in PNG, 
the KJV is available in USFM format (including deuterocanon) at
http://ebible.org/bible/kjv/kjvsf.zip http://ebible.org/bible/kjv/kjvsf.zip 

See main KJV page - bottom of left side bar.
