Thank you Troy for the information.
To fully support the ThML spec it would be nice if the parsing mechanism 
could handle roman numberings like xii etc.

This example is taken directly from the ThML definition of the scripRef 
passage="Rom. viii. 27,28; x. 8-13"
At the moment sword would not be able to parse this because it is not in the 
book chapter:verse format. Am I right?
