I took a look at the osis schema and it is more
complex than I have been imaging.
My bible text file is very simple (one verse a line):
Gen 3:18
Gen 3:19
I also have the text in a database. 
Any one already have a tool (like xslt or program)
that can transform the above format or similar format
into OSIS ?
