Thanks Karl,

Both BibleTime and Xulsword display the table as in my test module.
The markup for tables was copy / paste from the Crosswire wiki OSIS

Line indents are important for poetry markup ..  I'll have to delve
again into how this is done in OSIS bibles... but last time I checked,
it was not helpful.

Generally speaking, maybe this general OSIS situation has not been so
apparent as I have not been able to find genbook modules using
extensive OSIS markup.

I am not a programmer, but will look at the filters to see what I can
discover, though as all the markup in my test module displays in one
or more front ends ... its strange!
