It may not quite that simple... without css, I'm not sure how you can do
indentations easily in html (blockquotes? &nbsp;s?). BPBible currently
extends the wxHTML parser to add some new tags and then it is easy. I should
be able to make BPBible use the level attribute very easily.

Another thing that BPBible does is puts the verse number in the lg margin
during poetry - more like a print Bible.

Not that I've seen; but I haven't looked far. Anyway, it would be good to
update these.

God Bless,
Multitudes, multitudes,
   in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
   in the valley of decision.
