[sword-devel] How do I encode osisRefs to lexicons?

This all looks correct. The only change I would make would be to move 
the "See" out of the reference tag, but that's just a personal 
preference (mainly because it will look the same whether you have one 
link or a list of many links covered by one "See").

We're supposed to work on the OSIS reference scheme definition at the 
next meeting. (In other words, the mechanism for declaring which IDs 
occur within a reference system.)
