Actually, he does care. He just doesn't code to rumors. I haven't
noticed any firm, accessible documentation on OSIS that would lead me to
think that changing my converter would be appropriate. I don't really
believe OSIS will catch on, much, because it is possible to do much
better with a Scripture XML schema, at least from the perspective of
most of those who generate Scripture files (like Bible translators and
publishers). Anyway, thanks...
