      Description

      Unicode replacement character U+FFFD is present in two verses of Matthew 9

      Matthew 9:27 Ciise intuu meeshaas ka tegayay, waxaa daba socday laba nin oo Indhala�, iyagoo qaylinaya oo leh, Ina Daa'uudow, noo naxariiso.
      Matthew 9:28 Goortuu guriga galay ayay nimankii indhaha la'aa u yimaadeen. Markaasaa Ciise wuxuu ku yidhi, Ma rumaysan tihiin inaan waxan yeeli karo? Waxay ku yidhaahdeen, Haah, Sayidow.
      Matthew 9:29 Markaasuu indhahooda taabtay isagoo leh, Sida rumaysadkiinnu yahay ha idiin noqoto.
      Matthew 9:30 Markaasaa indhahoodii furmeen. Ciise aad buu u amray, oo ku yidhi, Iska jira; ninna yaanu ogaan.
      Matthew 9:31 Laakiin iyagu way baxeen oo warkiisa ku fidiyeen dhulkaas oo dhan.
      Matthew 9:32 Kolkay baxeen, bal eeg, waxaa loo keenay nin Carrabla� oo jinni qaba.

      We had confirmation from SIM in October 2009 that these should be replaced by the proper curly quote. U+2019.

      "Sorry to have delayed in giving you an answer regarding the replacement characters in Matthew 9. I have been out of the country and could not look things up. The corrections that you made are correct. In the printed KQA book the ' curly quotation occurs correctly in the verses 27 and 32, as well as in the .pdf files that we sent to the printers. We don't know how those two slanted quotation marks got into the text sent to you, but I am glad you found them for your formatting and have made the necessary changes."

      NB. His reply was sent in the context of the KQA Go Bible.

        The fourth 'major section' in Psalms should be for Psalms 90-106, but there is a premature </div> at the end of Psalm 97 followed by the start of a new section in Psalm 98.
        Also, each stanza of Psalm 119 is a section of its own.
        So there are 28 sections in the Psalms in total (5 + 1 + 22).
        These sections are all displayed at the same "folding level" in XML Copy Editor.

        It may have been better to have used <div type="majorSection"> for the five books of Psalms.
        This attribute value was not used.

        Thanks DM for your input. I have not tried the nightly build for BD.

        And remember, I'm using Windows 7 (64-bit), so I'd probably need a special CMD file merely to open it, were I to download it.

        Maybe I should let you have an interim copy of the module?

        And Bible 1.6.0 does display "chapter titles" (in the other 65 books).

        In XML however, these are actually "section titles" that just happen to be before verse 1. Example:

        <chapter sID="Matt.10" osisID="Matt.10"/>
        <div type="section"><p></p>
        <title>Ciise Laba Iyo Tobankiisii Rasuul</title>
        <title type="parallel">(Mar. 3:13-19; Luuk. 6:12-16)</title>
        <p>
        <verse sID="Matt.10.1" osisID="Matt.10.1"/>
        Markaasuu wuxuu u yeedhay laba-iyo-tobankii xertiisa ahaa oo wuxuu siiyey amar ay jinniyo wasakh leh ku saaraan oo ay bugto walba iyo cudur walba ku bogsiiyaan.
        </p>

        The minor quirk is that the verse 1 tags have a line feed before the verse text, iff the chapter has a title.
