I would guess the main differences in output are all accounted for by checking which combination of rendering engine and filter set is employed. BT e.g. wraps and reimplements the sword engine's filters. BD and And Bible use jsword, but use different exit points afaik, former chases all module content through a XSLT conversion to create HTML, latter does something else.

As a general FYI, when I would test for conformity to how text should display, I used to test PocketSword vs Xiphos vs Eloquent/MacSword vs BPBible. My testing showed that they were a reasonable source of test cases. If something looked right in them but not in PS, I knew I had a bug. :)(Karl, I would also be interested in hearing why other front-ends don’t seem to conform. Has a lot of work gone into other front-ends to change how some modules are presented because the back-end code isn’t feature complete yet?)(PS: I’m on holidays and half-hoping to have a new beta of PS out in the next 2 weeks. Perhaps even have a new release of PS out by Christmas? iPhone 6/6+ compatibility would be good!)

I find it odd that this discussion died out
without any further consideration from other app or engine developers
as to why the apps' delivery varies.
