[sword-devel] new BibleCS for testing

Thanks Lynn,
	Now that we are showing headings at appropriate places, many modules 
will have to be redone.  It seems we have all kinds of extraneous data 
in the heading fields which, up till now, has been harmless.

	I also am not happy with the new line issue.  Doing things modularly 
sometimes makes it difficult to do things like only include 1 newline 
when a render filter might substitute one for </title>, and the chapter 
display adds one after each heading.  I was going to attempt some magic 
to check for newline before adding one, but it's often something more 
like {Title /par/pard}-- not undoable, just not something I wanted to 
add right before a release.

	Thanks for the report on these and the others.
