Just had a short look at the site (not lynx friendly) and had some 
questions about your markup definitions.

Most notaby how do you (read: Wolfgang)  handle apocive books? It seems
you can only assign a book number to the tag.

Unfortunatly I could not follow the link to the exact specification 
(turned up a 404) to have a more thorough look.

Then again: I have not looked into the OSIS specification to see how 
flexible it is so it is hard to compare. But you seem to have dropped down 
to an absoluut minimum which is only fitted for canonical bibles and 
nothing beyond that.

Will have to look into the issues in a bit more detail later this week.
