Either or both.  Presumably you'll tell Sword to process the text and give 
you a single markup format in all cases.  BibleCS tells Sword to give it 
RTF, for example.  GnomeSword tells Sword to give it HTMLHREF format.

Once the front-end has this text, it may do some more processing, like 
setting up layout and finding links within the text, before it sends it to 
whatever layout control is being used.

Make sense?  Let me know if you have a specific portion of processing in 
mind that I didn't cover.
