I suggest you look at some existing apps. BibleTime does parallel
display using ordinary html tables and it has worked well. Indexing
works also and you can search for Strong's etc. Troy have suggested
using the clucene implementation which already has been integrated into
the Sword library. Maybe the problem is that it is not well documented?

Is there any possibility that you could use WebKit as the display
renderer? It could be a huge step forward to have common display
technology between the projects.
