[sword-devel] GBS Language/Markup

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.
