imp2vs makes a module from formatted text, so do this before you run the tool.
I think you use GBF, so have a look at http://www.ebible.org/bible/gbf.htm for 
the GBF standard. Use the tags to sourround the text which are headers or red 
letter words.

Ask Troy :)

under Linux you can use recode to convert between charsets.
E.g. recode latin1..utf8 file.txt converts the content of file.txt from latin1 
to utf8.
