[sword-devel] Sword 1.6.x and various frontends

It is very informative to know that it is only 2 verses.  That would 
give good reason to switch to KJV versification for Sword modules.  Also 
thanks for the info especially on java based front-ends.  XulSword and 
Xiphos are installing it and gets the versification correct, expect for 
the header gets lost for Revelations 12.  I don't know why that 
happened.  BPBible installs it, keeps the right headings, but messes up 
the versification.  Finally, it still is a bit frustrating that even 
using KJV versification the java based front-ends don't recognize the 
Bible mod I made using the latest osis2mod where the osis was derived 
from Paratext export.

Overall a big thanks to all of you for the numerous replies given.
