[sword-devel] milestone element, osisRef attribute

In the OSIS 2.1 Users Manual, for the milestone element only three attribute names are mentioned: type, n, marker

The osisRef attribute is currently defined only for the following OSIS elements: catchWord, chapter, div, figure, note, q, reference

If we wish to enhance the CrossWire updated OSIS schema, the request should be added as a new subsection in this wiki page:

What does the Uighur translation team envisage as the practical use of osisRef in the OSIS example given?
What would we expect SWORD to do with it?

Best regards,
