[sword-devel] links within genbooks

Yes, there is a method for linking to other entries within 
genbooks/etc., but you're not going to like it. And I don't think anyone 
has implemented it.

Basically, use osisRefs. The issues are roughly outlined in the "How do 
I encode osisRefs to lexicons?" thread.

I wouldn't recommend using URIs for this, but, then, neither would I 
recommend using ThML, for myriad reasons.

Yeah, I think we defined this a while ago. I don't recall whether we 
ever implemented it beyond Bibles in BibleCS.
