  • Require a new pair of attributes for the <chapter> element to be used for unambiguously identifying the start and end location for a chapter.
    • Add the attribute sid for identifying the chapter start location
    • Add the attribute 'eid for identifying the chapter end location


USX 3.0 adds a pair of attributes to <verse> (sid and eid) (see #34) which are used to unambiguously identify the start and end position for scripture verse text within the scripture discourse structure. This is a companion pair of attributes for <chapter>.

In USX 3.0 a <chapter/> milestone is required at the start and at the end of the verse text, with corresponding sid and eid attributes. In previous versions of USX, only a <chapter/> start milestone was required.

      and he was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came—that was the sixth day.
