Hello all,

I'm forwarding this for those of you who weren't subscribed on the thml 
mailinglist at ccel. Harry informed us that they will offer OSIS exports of 
all the texts at ccel in future. Isn't this nice?
Troy, maybe you want to give a short information about the future of OSIS as 
it relates to Sword?

As you probably recall, ThML is the XML markup
language used by the Christian Classics Ethereal

I am planning to kill the thml-list mailing list
unless there are objections. It's not being used,
except for spamming.

Besides, with the imminent introduction of OSIS,
a more broad-based XML standard for scripture and
scripture-related literature (see
http://www.bibletechnologies.net/), I expect that
ThML use outside of the CCEL will wane and OSIS
will wax. ThML will continue to be used on the CCEL
internally, but we plan to make OSIS versions of
documents available as well.

You can still discuss CCEL and ThML-related matters
on the "ccel-list" mailing list. To subscribe, send
a message to mailto:majordomo@calvin.edu containing
only the line

subscribe ccel-list

It's been nice talking with you on the thml-list!
