Yes.  In this case just <scripRef>John 3:16</scripRef> would suffice.  
OSIS should be posted in a day or so (or less) so you could be REALLY 
cutting edge and use <reference osisRef="John.3.16">John 3:16</reference>. 
:)  You could use OSIS references for linking to non-scripture materials 
in a canonical manner also.  And <a> tags are supported by both ThML & 
OSIS (though probably not by BibleCS) to link with URIs.

No. It's a failing of our HTML to RTF filter.  I don't have a list of what 
works, but you could read the HTMLRTF file.  :)  Anything we mention in 
that should work.
