When the SourceType is unspecified, it is Plaintext.
Both ThML and OSIS filters can handle Plaintext modules, but they differ
in the handling of whitespace from the Plaintext filters. I don't know
what would happen if it were changed to SourceType=OSIS, but I'd like to
see that change. Maybe, the front-ends can give the user a choice of
whether to have a plain or rich text personal commentary and the
front-end would record the results in the conf's SourceType field.
In looking at how BibleTime, GnomeSword and BibleCS create personal
commentaries, I found that they did not create portable ones. I forget
the details, as I looked a long time ago.
I was hoping when writing BibleDesktop's code for the personal
commentary to code to a portable standard. Maybe we can create one going
