mcgafter noun

A makeshift instrument or tool (mechanical, electronic or otherwise) whereby one may gaff (poke, hook, hack) something to achieve the desired result. Works better when it gets attached to a mcgoerie*. Very common worldwide especially in parts of Africa where it has been known to be the tool of choice of even high level government officials for all governmental problems.


mcgoerie noun

A well designed tool similar in shape and function to a mcgafter* yet completely different in it's purpose. May also be used on it's own. Uses of this instrument are very rare and appears to only occur in the countries of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South Africa, as well as where former residents of those countries have dispersed abroad.

Thanks. I've found another solution which I'll post tomorrow as the site won't allow me to answer my own question right now. But your solution is a bit cleaner to implement and seems to work.

@Marco: Thanks, that works perfectly. I misinterpreted the manual. I also had a 2007 copy floating around, instead of the new one.

Thanks. Try running it through XeLaTeX. I can't find a native \ifthesubsection or even a \ifsubsection command. Which manual are you refering to?

@Raphink: I'm not quite sure how to add the counter to the pagestyle to have it work for every book's first verse. The code I've posted in this question can be treated as open-source as far as I am concerned.
