I've grabbed the latest trunk svn and had a look around.  I can't see 
Chris's Perl script in among it, but I reckon I could trawl through the 
WEB version online and manually edit canon_kjva.h to match the WEB 
versification that exists.  I might have a go and if I get it working, 
make it available for use.  Thanks for that.  I hadn't realised it would 
be as easy as adding the header and re-compiling the engine and 
osis2mod.  My coding is not really up to much these days, but as you 
say, the headers are only lists ... even I can probably work with that.

God bless,        Barry.
