[sword-devel] OSIS Commentary

Given Sword's current architecture for commentaries, that would be the 
best method of encoding them (for use in Sword). In reality, 
commentaries are generally a bit more free-form, but to use them in 
Sword you'll want to treat them as if they have the same structure as 
Bibles, basically.

There is a little commentary-specific markup in OSIS, but Sword wouldn't 
specifically recognize it. osis2mod will pass it along, unaltered, 
should the front-ends wish to do anything with it.
