I have written directly to Vince offering to assist with the file conversion.
cc to DM Smith only.

I think this text development project is better taken offline from now on.

Aside: USFM files can be edited in any decent Unicode text editors.
For simple projects such as this, dedicated Bible editing software is usually not necessary.

Best regards,

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.

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.
