Why this page should prove useful

For a valid OSIS XML file to be "fit for purpose", it's necessary to know what to include in order to achieve the goal of making good SWORD modules. Though some of these extensions are already partially documented in existing wiki pages, there is no single place where they are all listed along with usage rules. As further pre-processing tools are being developed (such as USX to OSIS), having a one stop reference should be valuable to help developers ensure that they can take full advantage of existing solutions and workarounds.

This page will be a 'work in progress' for a time. I have made a start by adding sections for extensions found by searching the wiki. the result of such a search is probably quite incomplete. Developers who work on the SWORD source code should be able to add further sections. David Haslam 05:11, 27 April 2012 (MDT)
Further extensions were added by reference to and to kjv.xml. David Haslam 05:30, 28 April 2012 (MDT)

Non-CrossWire OSIS eXtensions

Please list any non-CrossWire OSIS eXtensions here in the talk page. David Haslam 11:45, 27 April 2012 (MDT)

SWORD and JSword

The page is intended to reflect what extensions are supported by the SWORD API. There is no guarantee that these extensions are also supported by JSword, albeit many of them are. David Haslam 05:26, 28 April 2012 (MDT)

Extensions no longer supported ...

If it turns out that I have listed any extension that is no longer supported by the latest release of the SWORD engine, please contact me before editing the main page. David Haslam 05:33, 28 April 2012 (MDT)

Extensions used in xulsword

Research here about OSIS extensions used in xulsword, but not yet implemented or adopted in SWORD.

This can be used within the milestone element as a value of the attribute type.

It's used to provide a poetry indentation as an alternative to using line elements with level attributes. Currently, deeper indents are created by two or three <milestone type="x-p-indent" /> tags in series.
