Ok this link helped me a lot...

About this page, I discovered two pages about genbook and Libreoffice, 
the first link seem to be the old page  :
And this one the new and good (the link and good, and the name of the 
filter odt2osis):
It can be interesting to correct this on the wiki and to put a link on 
the page about format to this this page.
I tested the filter, installation ok, using for text ok, it's very very 
nice!! Thank you Daniel. But problems occurred when I tried to integrate 
pictures and bible reference.
- For pictures, I didn't forgot to create the folder with the picture 
but during export, in the xml file in the picture "place" it's written : 
<figure src="Missing image path"/> And in xiphos an error occur : La 
taille d'une image n'a pu être déterminée.
&app; ne peut redimensionner les images pour s'adapter à la fenêtre.
Of course, because the is no link in the xml file. Maybe I understand 
not very well how to do for picture... But I tested also with the 
default picture of crosswire, without result.
I think there is a lake of informations on the way to do it.
-  For reference, I apply the character style osisref, but in the xml 
file after export, references are just text...
Thanks you help,
Br Cyrille
