The syntax I used is taken from Esther book example from
http://bibletechnologies.net/osistext/ (the first PDF)
I copy an example over from there:

   <verse sID="Esth.1.9" osisID="Esth.1.9" />
   While the men were enjoying themselves, Queen Vashti gave the
   women a big dinner inside the royal palace.
   <verse eID="Esth.1.9" />
   <verse sID="Esth.1.10" osisID="Esth.1.10" />
   By the seventh day, King Xerxes was feeling happy because of so
   much wine. And he asked his seven personal servants, Mehuman,
   Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, Abagtha, Zethar, and Carkas,
   <verse eID="Esth.1.10" />
   <verse sID="Esth.1.11" osisID="Esth.1.11" />
   to bring Queen Vashti to him. The king wanted her to wear her
   crown and let his people and his officials see how beautiful she
   <verse eID="Esth.1.11" />
   <verse sID="Esth.1.12" osisID="Esth.1.12" />
   The king's servants told Queen Vashti what he had said, but she
   refused to go to him, and this made him terribly angry.
   <verse eID="Esth.1.12" />

It is clear, that using <p> forces linebreaks between paragraphs (which
I have at every versebreak, I get the OSIS from a selfmade script and
plan to remove some of these manually later, but before that I want to
be sure that everything else is fine).
I still think <!/P> and <br/>  shouldn't appear together, that creates
this enormous space.
