The roles of subType="x-preverse" and canonical="true" in title elements?

It would seem that the SWORD engine (though not JSword) not only uses the title attribute subType="x-preverse" to determine title position, but also to determine whether or not the title is displayed when the headings are hidden by the front-end settings for modules with GlobalOptionFilter=OSISHeadings. This is made more complicated by its relationship with the attribute canonical="true", which rightly overrides the hiding of headings in JSword, but not in SWORD. A further complication is when the same verse has more than one preverse title. Even JSword falls over at this point. I do not understand the reasoning behind this behaviour. David Haslam 09:44, 26 December 2011 (MST)

Some front-ends (other than xulsword) don't handle canonical titles properly. Some Psalms have more than one canonical titles. David Haslam 08:52, 7 January 2012 (MST)
