Hello, and thank you for accepting my request to join the mailing list. 
My name is Vince LaRue and I'm a missionary in Southern Chile. I use 
Eloquent almost exclusively, despite the frequent crashes, and I'd like 
to do whatever is in my limited (non-programmer) capacity to help the 
SWORD project.

I'm also the tech guy for what used to be the Valera Bible Society 
(Sociedad Bíblica Valera) before it was put on ice, and now the website, 
www.valera1865.org <http://www.valera1865.org/>, which I run, is a 
source for information about the RV1865. We've had the Bible itself back 
in print for 17 years now, but the various digital versions have been 
plagued with sundry typographical issues. I'm fixing that.

We're basically done with a complete, verse-by-verse overhaul of the 
text, and I have it in a cleaned-up verse-per-line format in basic HTML 
(each verse enclosed in <p> tags) broken down into 23 text files. I 
would like to produce a high-quality OSIS version that I can continue to 
work on, adding various tags throughout the text, but the goal is to get 
it ready for distribution immediately.

What are the steps that I need to take to make this happen? Are there 
utilities that can convert what I have to OSIS-compatible XML? Here's a 


<h1 align="left" >SAN MATEO</h1>

<p> CAPITULO 1</p>

<p>1 Libro de la generación de Jesu Cristo, hijo de David, hijo de 

<p>2 Abraham engendró a Isaac; e Isaac engendró a Jacob; y Jacob 
engendró a Júdas, y a sus hermanos;</p>

<p>3 Y Júdas engendró de Tamar a Fares y a Zara; y Fares engendró a 
Esrom; y Esrom engendró a Aram;</p>

Thank you again for your time, and I look forward to working with you all.

In Christ,

Vince LaRue
