[sword-devel] I implore you...

I am unaware that SWORD does not support mid-verse section headings.

They are the easier case, as opposed to pre-verse section headings which 
require special treatment.  I am simply looking for a known location in 
existing module with a mid-verse heading to check and see.  If you know 
of one, please, could you send the module name and verse location, or 
better, simply check it out on swordweb yourself and report back:
