Using Diatheke ?
Is there a way to get Diatheke to leave out each verse? I.e. diatheke Jo 3:10-17 has each verse labelled
Can I tell Diatheke to skip the verses in the output?
Ultimately I want a command line option do something like
diatheke -noverse (scripture) | festival --tts
to speak any portion of scripture. (can set a reading plan up as a daily alarm, etc. )
(if it matters I'm using linux. PCLinuxOS 2007 to be more specific.)

Workaround for RTF format
Here's a workaround for the missing color table in diatheke RTF output format.
Using an ordinary Unicode compliant text editor, insert the following as line 2 into the file.
Then save the file. When opened afterwards using WordPad, the red letter text should display correctly.
