I'm interested in other ways that OSIS (xml in general) can be rendered.
Some browsers (maybe all modern ones by now) are able to apply CSS
directly to xml to produce output. Flying Saucer
(https://xhtmlrenderer.dev.java.net/) looks promising to me as something
that can be used by a Java program.

The biggest gain I see in using xslt is to have parameter driven output.
E.g. the style of verse references, whether to show notes or not, ....
The second gain is that it is simple, though it takes a bit of learning.
The problem with raw text from an OSIS document is things like quotes,
Words of Christ and Divine Name, i.e. Lord are marked up in such a way
that they don't appear right in raw text.
