[sword-devel] How to handle on xml file per book in Osis ?

Hi Pierre,

This is a very good idea but it would require considerable effort to incorporate into the release process script by the modules team.

First though, can osis2mod handle a file that uses this method? If not, what would it take to implement it in the ModTools & SWORD ?

Discuss details.

Aside: I’ve seen at least one example of an XML file set that uses this method.

Une version TEI XML de la traduction française de la Vulgate (Bible latine) par l'Abbé Glaire (†1879)

I once converted her TEI files to a single OSIS file and built a module. Never got round to a formal submission to CrossWire.

Best regards
