[sword-devel] Suggestions: Red-Letter type Mark Up for Messianic References in OT

Thanks Peter .. I have  looked over the OSIS document and been overwhelmed
by the options.  I seems to me to be two related strategies; consistently
alter text in a visible way (as the red-letter quote seems to do), or group
text into class types (as the foreign or divinename tags seem to do). Your
cross-reference note is a good one for inter-text connectivity.

Are there additional ways to set apart groups of particular texts, as
related (as the <q marker="" who="Jesus> seems to do with Jesus' quotes); a
sort of text grouping function? What other tags alter the appearance of the
text besides one's I'm currently aware of (divineName, foreign, <q
marker="" who="Jesus>)?
