I would have thought that you would indicate these with sections (from
memory <div type="section">).  Are you likely to have markers for
things that are not traditional sections?  If you have references from
other modules, I would have thought it would be to something like
Genesis 3:1-5, section 2, and giving each of your sections a unique ID
would probably allow them to be linked to.
