Patch and content for Synodal and also app i tested it.

If  two chapters with two different v11ns have additional verse at end
and intermediate system doesn't have that verse everything should work
right way. If that verses are with different content and should not be
mapped  i plan to use space outside intermediate system and each verse
should have its own place.

For  example  in Synodal Dan.3.24-90 does not exist in KJV, and i plan
map  it  right after the end of chapter to Dan.3.31-97. I will need to
check  persistence of place and if it is not persists in target v11n -
make  resulting  key  hollow.  And  also i need to keep a list of such
problem places.

Unexisting  chapter  and  books  will  be translated to empty place in
intermediate system and after translating to target system it could be
mapped  correctly.  If  verse/chapter  order is different we should to
choose  one of them as secondary intermediate system and setup mapping
for other system.

I   think   content  is  more  important  now  if  we  have  draft  of

I  send book data as string so book order isn't issue. Yes i could add
book  to  book  data  but Synodal books has same names as KJV in Sword

I  want to say that i need mapping data for any existing Sword module.
I  know  that  there  are some data available but i need some guidance
(like  "this  file from this source is mapping data for that module in
Sword").  That  i  finished  with Synodal content has little effect on
overall progress.

Also i have 3 questions about code.

1.  some  verses  points  on  headings  for  example Synodal.Ps.3.1 ==
heading  of  KJV.Ps.4  ,  so  should  key  states  be  changed  during
translation (Heading(1)) ?

2.  some  verses  point to ranges of verses. should i change bounds in
this case (UpperBound())?

3. and if target content doesnt exist, what i should do, just set
