Interesting.  The generated RTF is quite impressive.

In marking up a "canonical" (classical) text to XML, where verses, chapters,
etc., were numbered, would this numbering *in general* be better expressed by
elements, attributes, or stylesheet generation?

What is the implication for *linking* to those verses, where there is no ID
attribute, as opposed to:

        <v n="1">In the beginning, there wasn't diddly.</v>

Also, is there any particular reason you preferred using things like &#8212;
instead of declaring the ENTITYs in the DTD?
