Sticky Wicket #1 (faulty scripture reference tagging)

Thanks for your advice to ignore faulty scripture references "for now." Thanks even more for adding this problem to the issue tracker: it occurs in far more than a handful of situations.

For a start, whoever tracks this issue may want to begin with the following page, which contains three faulty tags.

http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/hcc2.v.iii.i.html

Pliny (107): Ep. x. 96 sq. (the letter to Trajan).

Tertullian (about 200): . . . Adv. Jud. 7, 12, 13.

RUFINUS: Hist. Eccles. ix. 6.

There are many other examples in the same book, which uses many abbreviations, including Ep[istle], Jud[aeos], Eccles[iastica], Eccl[esiae], Rom[e], Par[is], Phil[ip], and the ubiquitous col[umn] -- open invitations to faulty scripture references.

I will delete no more such references but, wishing the issue tracker all success, just avoid "mousing over" anything I recognize to be a pointless pointer.
