Sorry for the delay.

I will shortly start working on a new source text for the hebrew bible, from 
the Westminster Hebrew Institute. This one is more correct than the ccat one 
and will be our new base text, and it also will not be called BHS any longer, 
though the text is identical (codex leningradensis).

It looks like we will use a java program to convert the transliterated 
Michigan format to OSIS. If Graham Nind wants to help with that, he is very 
much welcome.
