Wow! I'm looking forward to those!
The TEI filter does not do much styling. May I suggest that you add
styling for the elements I've used for the NASB lexicons.
Here are the ones that I use with the styling that I am using in
etym haven't decided
Also TEI used rend and not type for the hi element.
Some of these may already be handled.
For Strong's references, I am using <ref target="id">key text</ref>.
For BDB references, I am using <xref doc="bdb" to="id (target)">text</xref>
(I don't expect either of these to be handled except to have their text
shown, which is what SWORD does!)
Also, can you see a way that we can combine the Greek and Hebrew
lexicons into 1?
I also noticed the schema for TEI dictionaries on the wiki has osisID
and osisRef. I didn't study the schema, but at a glance I didn't see
where or how these are used. Would you shed some light?
