Chris, thanks for the reference site.  The reason why I want to separate 
out the "a" is because with Heb 1:5a, sword goes to Heb 1:1.  The "a" makes 
sword ignore the 5.

As I told Don, I will learn thml and apply it.  As stated, I have been 
using imp2gbs.exe  This has been rather easy to deal with, but it's worth 
the effort learing thml.

Follow ThML syntax. http://www.ccel.org/ThML/scripref.htm

Sword may not handle everything currently, but we will work towards that
in time.  Maybe I'm missing your point, but I don't see why you want to
separate the 'a' out from the rest of the reference.  Sword won't have any
problem with it and will just take you to Heb 1:1.

If you want to "link" to a passage other than what is between the scripRef
tags, just include a passage attribute with the reference.  If you want a
specific version, use a version attribute.  Some frontends may handle
these, others may not, but this is how you should make modules.
