I hadn't thought about the change to apps, but I expected changes to  
the engine and perhaps the apps.

I guess it makes sense to treat the content as a heading, but not  

In OSIS, there can be canonical material that is inter/pre-verse, e.g.  
the titles in Psalms are canonical. But it can also be that there is  
some that is non-canonical. Plus, I would expect rich markup of the  
entire of the div, with notes, divine name, Strong's numbers,  
transChange, ....

I know some changes were made toward rich markup, but I don't know how  

I think we can mock up a module in imp format and use that to make the  
engine and app changes.

I'll be working on osis2mod, but will need someone else to do the  
filter work.
