txt2mod is ancient, so don't use it.  Also, I recommend against GBF, 
except in some circumstances when doing Bibles.

So as far as markup goes, I suppose my recommendation is to use ThML, 
though we will soon enough move everything to OSIS and be able to remove 
our support for non-OSIS source markup.

For input, you can use thml2gbs for general books, but I believe it is 
still broken at the moment.

Aside from that, use imp2[vs|ld|gbs].  They take files in a format such as 

value of key1
value of key2
value of key3


So fill in verse references or dictionary entry names for the keys.  If 
you're doing a genbook, the keys follow a naming scheme like 
"/level 1/level 2/level 3/level 4/etc".
