[sword-devel] Split verse tags in Paratext/USFM ?

We occasionally encounter split verse tags in Bible translations, 
e.g. mostly where the translators deemed it appropriate to start a new
paragraph in the middle of a verse.

So you might encounter [say]

\v 2-6a text for first five and a half verses
\v 6b-11 text for next five and half verses

On the rare occasions, we've even seen a section heading in between too.

Has anyone ever come across a USFM file in which a verse has been split into
more than TWO parts?


The development by Chris of the Python script usfm2osis.py, 
in which handling a 'split verse' is still in his # TODO.
