We could use plain text file (maybe zipped) and ditch whole xml stuff. Then 
we would have to have OSIS 2 Text converter (not on portable device but on 
desktop computer from which we install). We would just need to create 
driver to read this. Text files could be formated in special way, for 
example we could use one file per book from bible, each line in text file 
would have a code in front of it, we would reperesent chapter and line (for 
ex. 01-01, for chapter 1, line 1), searching could be done very simple, 
with either index file (where it's shown how many lines has chapter) or 
some alternate way...

Just an idea...
