[sword-devel] OSIS feature support and questions

Hi all,

I'm preparing a commentary in OSIS, and have some feature requests :

    * OSIS tables
    * additional hi types: small-caps, underline, super, sub (small-caps
      is most important of these, but I'd appreciate all four)
    * <q> markers.  When processed, these currently add a generic double
      quote (") at the <q> and </q> locations.  I request that the <q>
      adds a left double quote (“) and the </q> adds a right double
      quote (”).  Most printed commentaries make use of both, including
      the one which I am preparing.  Lack of the two different quote
      types can sometimes make it confusing where quotations start and
      stop, in particular when many quotes are lumped together in a
      single paragraph.  Maybe this can be done with a style sheet.  If
      so, could someone help me with how to accomplish this?

Additionally, I have a question about <a> tags.  I'd like to put down
markers for other modules to later link to.  Is it true that OSIS <a>
tags only support "href" and not "name" attributes?  Maybe this should
be done with an <index> tag instead?

Lastly, is there a markup for an alternate translation of a phrase.  The
commentary in question primarily uses the KJV text, but will then offer
some alternate translations.  So it will have many phrases like:
    literally, “in the fields”
Should “in the fields” be marked?  It's sort of similar in thought to a
<rdg>, but it's certainly not <rdg>.  I'd appreciate knowing the best

Thanks very much,
