BibleDesktop has xslt that can be used to transform it to HTML. It  
might need a bit of adaptation to get it to work. I think Brian  
Fernandes, the creator of FireBible, has done the effort here.

Basically, you can serve the xml along with the xslt to a web browser  
to get it to display the text. How to do this differs by browser. I  
don't know the details anymore.

One issue with doing this is that of volume. I don't think you'd want  
to view a lot of the text at one time.

If you're interested, join jsword-devel (notice the leading J) and ask  

I'm cross-posting so any replies should not be a "Reply-All" unless  
you're a member of both lists.

In Christ,
