I guess (well, it's just a guess) they are different in different bibles
(different source formats (GBF, ...)) but would be consistent within one
text. So this should probably go into the HTML filter for the different
formats to detect references and invent some tag (or use already defined
thml tags) to tell the presenter where the reference points to. We then
need to subclass out nice KHTML widget to process those extry tags.

Does this make sence?
