[sword-devel] OSIS2XHTML XSLT and Openoffice.org2OSIS2Sword

Several years ago I wrote a XSLT transformation from OSIS to XHTML and 
integrated it with a simple XUL (Mozilla based) app - well it really 
wasn't much of an app; sort of just a thing. :) Anyway,  anybody 
remember that? I no longer have those files.
If anyone still has that XSLT, I was thinking of using it as a basis to 
reverse the process and create a XHTML2OSIS XSLT.

Or better yet an OpenOffice.org to OSIS XSLT. OpenOffice.org now has the 
ability to integrate XSLTs. That capability, along with a custom templet 
and style, OpenOffice.org could natively save to OSIS. Folks have done 
something similar for DocBook.

I've been completely out of this sort of thing for a solid two years, so 
I forgot more than I learned about XSLT, but I did some checking tonight 
and the possibilities look promising.

My primary interest would be in creating a tool to convert puritan 
sermons and historic systematic theologies into Sword modules. With the 
scripture indexing capabilities we tossed around, I see a huge potential 
for a very productive expansion of the Sword Project's module library.
