I am not directly involved with the Sword project, but I thought I could
pick up some wisdom from you guys.  I am working on web based scripture
project, and am using XML for communication of scripture (and other
data) between flash front end and php/mysql.  Rather than invent my own
way to do this, I would like to follow some other already created
schema.  I noticed THML, XSEM, and OSIS.  How do these compare?  What is
the reason you prefer and are choosing OSIS?

Use XML, preferrably OSIS.  When OSIS 1.1 is completed, we will begin 
moving all materials over to this format.

You can find information about OSIS at:
