[sword-devel] Bible Markup

I am in the process of updating the OSHB module.  I have a valid OSIS 
file of the text, but I have a few questions about markup for effective 
display in SWORD.

1. I have lemmas of the form lemma="c/d/776" and lemma="5921 a", where 
the c/d encodes the prefixes on the word, the numbers are Strong numbers 
and the 'space a' represents an 'augment' for the Open Scriptures Hebrew 
Lexicon, to tie in to Brown, Driver, Briggs.  My thought was to do 
something like: lemma="pre:c/d strong:776" and lemma="strong:5921 
aug:a".  Would this give better presentation that we have currently?  Or 
is there a better way?

2. Some of the words have morphology attributes, like 
morph="HC/Td/Ncfsa".  These are coded to the Hebrew Morphology Codes 
If they need a prefix, I was thinking of something like 

3. The words themselves have 'morphological divisions', like 
וְ/הָ/אָ֗רֶץ.  These are meant to separate the prefixes from the main 
word.  We have used <seg> elements in the past, 
<seg>וְ</seg><seg>הָ</seg><seg>אָ֗רֶץ</seg>. Would this approach require 
<seg> around every word, or only those words that have actual division 

This came up because I tried making the module directly from the OSIS, 
without prefixes.  I found both the lemmas and morphs all jumbled 
together and superimposed over each other, under each word, when I 
tested the module in Xiphos.  I would like to automate the process of 
preparing the text for SWORD, as much as possible, so future updates 
won't be so labor intensive.

Your help will be appreciated.
