[sword-devel] verse position problems

Where are you seeing this problem of verse placement numbers? Some of the frontends have problem displaying verse numbers in the right place with RtoL text.

Otherwise, I think it is a problem with your text.

The verse number will be placed where the <verse> element starts. If you put a elements such as <p>, <div>, <lg>, <l> right after the <verse ...> start, then the verse number will be followed by a newline.

Generally, elements that contain text and imply newlines should be placed between verses. On occasion it can split a verse. Likewise for such element ends: Typically between verses. Sometimes within.

If you have these at the end of a verse right before </verse>, it will cause other problems that are not as obvious. 

Hope this helps a bit.

In Him,

To make it more confusing, this only occurs for verse numbers that aren’t immediately after a chapter number.

I admit to not finding anything which conclusively helped me with how to code the transition from book to book, but would this affect verse numbers?
