Subject: Constructing PSI's


As part of the OSIS (Open Scriptural Information Standard) project, I 
have been asked to work up some demonstration PSIs for a meeting next 
week in Dallas, Texas.

There was some discussion in London about not using the "/#apple" syntax 
seen in the Gentle Introduction if one has a separate (obviously small) 
page each PSI.

Example from the Gentle Introduction:

<topic id="apple">
  <!-- names and occurrences -->

Some subjects, such as the one of the 11 individuals named "Joseph" in the Bible, may be easier to manage as separate files.

What I am suggesting is something along the lines of: 

<topic id="joseph_gen.37">
  <!-- names and occurrences -->

BTW, the reason for appending the Bible reference is that most users of 
the PSIs will recognize the reference as one to the Joseph novella in 
Genesis. Thinking about making  that a common practice with Bible PSIs. 
Probably should consistently use the underscore between the name and the 

Probably will use a different struture for locating the PSI files, to 
allow the SBL to have a separate section that may have further 
subdivisions, and to permit other publishers to locate their PSIs for 
Bible related material at the site.

Comments, suggestions?

Hope everyone is having a great day!
