I saw that and am considering using xslt to transform the ThML version
to OSIS. It also has some significant structural markup as well.
So far I have been working on a structural model to use. The TEI
dictionary schema, which OSIS plans to use, has lots of flexibility. I
am thinking of figuring out how to use it, submitting it to the OSIS
folks for review, with ample samples. Hopefully, it will help move the
adoption. From that I can use XSLT to transform it to a form that will
work as a sword module.
Once I have that I will evaluate whether it would be easier to go from
CCEL's ThML using XSLT or the raw original using perl or java.
As I have been busy with "life, the universe and everything", I have not
gotten as far as I would have liked.
Thanks for continued encouragement,
