yes it is true the quality of a zefania xml module depends on  the
source files i have. :( 	I'm sorry to say that  i haven't time to
proof read all files before publishing them. My position is better a
slight deficient module than no module...

Ok now to the Volxbible Sword module the workflow was as follow.

VolxbibelWIKI>>ThML-Datei >>> Zefania XML >> zefania_2_sword_win32 >> Sword

I could only control the step ThML-Datei >>> Zefania XML

the new workflow will be:

VolxbibelWiki >>Zefania XML >> zef2osis.pl >>osis2mod>> Sword

then we will know what is lossily  :))

BTW the step VolxbibelWiki >>Zefania XML is already finished
here you find the Volxbibel 3.0 with header and footnotes


have fun!
