Not really an answer to your question, but finding a v11n that will work:
1) Find those that have the same books as your bible.xml. It is OK for 
the v11n to have more books, but not less books. I think osis2mod will 
choke on having less books.
2) Then find those that have the same number of chapters per book as 
your bible.xml. It is OK for the v11n to have more chapters, but not 
less. Osis2mod is particularily unhappy to find a chapter it did not expect.
3) Then find those that have the same number of verses per chapter per 
book. This is not critical. If there are fewer, osis2mod will append the 
extra verses to the last verse in the chapter.
4) Then look for one that has the books in the same order.

Osis2mod will take books, chapters and verses out of order and plug them 
into the module in the v11n order.

Hope this helps.

In Him,
