[sword-devel] OSIS Commentary

A while back, I asked what might have been a similar question about
whether OSIS could be used to markup a sharing tract

The impression I got was that this capability was not yet possible to
do with OSIS 1.5 or 2.1, but might be in the future. I stared at the
specs and some examples for quite a while, and it wasn't apparent
which tags were appropriate, or if there were appropriate tags. But I
don't claim much experience or expertise in this area.

My (possibly uninformed) impression is that a sharing tract and a
commentary would be more or less equivalent as far as how a person
would go about preparing them with OSIS. If you figure out how to do a
commentary, please let me know.

(Note: AFAICT, there have been 17 threads on the osis list so far
during 2005)
