hello martin,

my aim is it to write biblesoftware based on xml files. I looked around 
and have found Sword and OSIS. But it seems that Sword has no support 
for xml files and in addition i do not like c++  :(.  Whereas  OSIS is a 
bit overdressed for my purposes and OSIS  has one disadvantage. On can 
create OSIS bibletexts in several variants which are valid OSIS 
documents so we have unnecessarily to keep in mind this  in an 
application. In particular it  is difficult to address a single verses 
in some variants !

But for all that if i can do anything for Sword i will do it !!
