In case anyone is waiting anxiously for the WEB & HNV modules, I just
wanted to give an update and report that I did find some time to work on
them over the weekend but am not finished. Basic GBF->OSIS tag
conversion is mostly complete. I think I still have to tweak quotation
marking, and the large tasks of pruning unnecessary tags & making the
converter not just generate equivalent OSIS elements but
schema-validatable (and then more generally OSIS-conformant) still
remain. So there's progress, but it will still take at least another
