I thought I'd have a play. I downloaded the osis file from
http://ebible.org/ and using the command: osis2mod ./
eng-webbe_osis.xml -z -v KJVA and the following as a .conf file:
Description=World English Bible with Apocrypha
I made a working module. The osis2mod error messages show that neither
KJVA nor any of the other currently available 'with'apocrypha'
versifications are correct. As an example, 4 Maccabees is ignored
completely .... there are a host of other unsupported verses. I wonder
if there is any chance someone could add a WEBA versification (or
explain to me very gently how to make one?) Chris Little maybe?
God bless, Barry.
