[sword-devel] NASB module

There has been a recent push to finish the NASB testing.  There have 
been only a few people provided with the keys, as Lockman would expect 
us to not make them freely available to a wide audience.

This discussion is regarding general module markup practice, so I am 
posting here for comments.

Testing done with module from (I hope this is the latest):

lockman <PM> (paragraph marker) is being changed to:
<lb type="x-end-paragraph"/> <lb type="x-begin-paragraph"/>

The add too much whitespace in the frontends.  I'd rather use:

<milestone type="line" subType="x-PM"/>

lockman L\ORD<MH3068>/ is being changed to:

<divineName><w lemma="strong:H3068">Lord</w></divineName>

which seems fine but our KJV text uses:

<w lemma="strong:H03068"><seg><divineName>Lord</divineName></seg></w>

We need to decide what our internal OSIS will look like for this 
construct and stick with it.  I don't like the <seg> but know why you 
did it.  I would prefer the KJV markup and drop the <seg>.  I'll get the 
OSIS guys to fix the spec.  We already support that markup the best 
anyway (with or without the seg).  Currently swordweb doesn't work with 
the NASB markup, and I'm guessing other filters also don't work.
