[osis-users] [sword-devel] milestone element, osisRef attribute

Deal all, 

I am not sure if this list is totally defunct, but I live in hope....

I am in the process of working on an update to CrossWire's cyrillic
Uygyur module.

There are a few instances where the new text does not validate due to
use of osisRef in the milestone element. 

The author asserts that osisRef should be possible inside the milestone
element and I can not see any reason indeed why it should not - other
than "the schema does not allow it". Below an example. The textual
background is a manuscript anomaly in Romans 14 and 16, where a couple
of verses appear commonly at the end of Romans 16, but in some
manuscript in Romans 14. 

<verse osisID="Rom.14.23 Rom.14.24 Rom.14.25 Rom.14.26"
sID="Rom.14.23 Rom.14.24 Rom.14.25 Rom.14.26" type="x-vsys-
fitted"/><milestone type="x-vsys-verse-start" annotateRef="Rom.14.23"
annotateType="x-vsys-source"/>Лекин бирәр йемәкликкә шәк кәлтүрүп
туруп, йәнә шу йемәкликни йегән киши вижданиниң әйиплишигә учрайду.
Чүнки у киши өзи йегән йемәкликниң тоғра екәнлигигә ишәнч қилалмиди.
Тоғра екәнлигигә ишәнч йоқ һалда қилинған һәр қандақ иш
гунадур.</p><milestone type="x-vsys-movedto" annotateRef="Rom.16.25"
annotateType="x-vsys-source" osisRef="Rom.14.24"/><milestone type="x-
vsys-movedto" annotateRef="Rom.16.26" annotateType="x-vsys-source"
osisRef="Rom.14.25"/><milestone type="x-vsys-movedto"
annotateRef="Rom.16.27" annotateType="x-vsys-source"
osisRef="Rom.14.26"/><verse eID="Rom.14.23 Rom.14.24 Rom.14.25
Rom.14.26" type="x-vsys-fitted"/><milestone type="x-vsys-verse-end"
annotateRef="Rom.14.23" annotateType="x-vsys-source"/>

Any views? Should the schema be updated or should I reject the module
in its current form? Is this a good use of the milestone tag? Are there
better ways of expressing what they want to express? 

As you probably know, CrossWire is maintaining update proposals to the
schema, but I would not want to push for this being added without
understanding this situation better 

Thanks - if anyone reads this and shares their wisdom with me.
