	It seems you don't realize that the question you are asking is not 
entirely logical.

OSIS is an XML schema-- which it sound like you are aware.

GBS - General Book Support-- is a SWORD driver and key format.  It is 
used for persisting things like OSIS encoded books.

SWORD included a markup tag in a module's .conf file to designate which 
markup the module is using.

You can create a general book (GBS), and designate that the module is 
marked up in OSIS.

Does that make sense?
