Re: New module: how to add Strong numbers?
Excellent question! I think this might be our first real forum post, even though they're not really public yet. :)

To encode Strong's numbers, you'll have to use one of the markup standards. We support Strong's encoded in GBF, ThML, and OSIS documents. I recommend OSIS, especially since you have some experience with it.

The way you will encode them is by putting a word element around each word and indicating the Strong's number in the lemma attribute.

For example:
<w lemma="Strong:G1234">word</w>

The "Strong:" prefix indicates what system of lemmatization you're using (in this case Strong's numbers) while "G1234" indicates you're using Strong's Greek number 1234. The contents of the element would be whatever word or words correspond to that number.
