	I've had a quick look at your test file, and although it validates 
against the schema, this does not mean that it is valid OSIS (including 
invalid osisID elements), it also doesn't seem to comply with the best 
practices OSIS user guide.

	Thank you for spending the time to come up with this document.  It will 
be great to use when we try to make our import tools handle most any 
case that might come up.

	I have fixed the Windows UI for </p> not being imported correctly. 
This is indeed a bug in the osis2mod importer.

	I'm sure osis2mod has many things that it cannot do right now which you 
would like and which it should do.

	Having said this, we have encoded very complex Bibles including the 
NASB and ESV into OSIS and successfully imported them with the osis2mod 

	It is important for us to progress this tool to support more types of 
OSIS markup which are valid, but advancing this tool does not have any 
bearing on the engine and it is my opinion that it shouldn't hold up its 

	I would like to help you get your Bible encoded into best practice OSIS 
encoding, and even stricter encoding which our tool will support.  Might 
I send you an excerpt from our NASB module that you can mimic, so you 
can get your Bible working with SWORD?

	Please don't take this wrong.  I really want to help you, but don't 
have the time myself to make this tool work for all of these variant 
encodings right now, and no one else seems willing to step up and do it 
either.  And we really need to get a labeled version out the door so 
frontend developers can have something they might release against.

	I hope this is understandable and that you know I don't want to imply 
that your contributions and Bible are not important.

	-Troy A. Griffitts.
