I'm also working on a french OSIS version.

Basic tools I'm using: 

- The OSIS reference book and the OSIS XML Schema. Both files can be freely
downloaded from http://www.bibletechnologies.net/
- An XML tool to validate my files. Under GNU/Linux, I have xmlwf to check
that my XML file is well-formed (in expact package) and xmllint to validate
against the schema (in libxml2-utils package). Most XML Editor are able to
do the same, but not on command line.
- osis2mod to build a sword module.

I'm also using
- xsltproc to transform an XML file into another XML or text file.
- make to build everything automatically from the first file.
- perl to parse, check, patch and tranform (most of the job).
- tidy to make a valid xml file from my initial msword-HTML input file.
