[sword-devel] Help with versification

My wife and I are team members of a minority Bible translation that we 
have received permission to proceed with the final stages of preparing a 
SWORD module for and a GoBible module.  I don't completely understand 
how versification works.  In the Sword module things work pretty well.  
Our translation of Matthew 1 has verse numberings that go like this: 1, 
2-6, 7-11, 12-16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25.  In Sword it is 
currently displayed like this: 1, 2, 7, 12, 17, 18, etc.  It would be 
preferable if I could get it to display like the first set, but that 
isn't so big of a problem.

However in GoBible I have a major problem because it displays like this: 
1,2 (represents 2-6), 3 (represents 7-11), 4 (represents 12-16), 5 (17), 
6 (18), and so on.

Did I make myself clear?  Is there anything I can do to keep the GoBible 
looking pretty but not have people look for a certain verse reference 
and find out that it is several verses off because of how we have 
combined some verses due to translation practice?

Any help would be appreciated,
