How do I decide whether to use a text to create a new text or a custom module?

I'll be more specific. I have a digital copy of the Rule of Saint Benedict. It would be nice to have it searchable through Bibleworks like a biblical text, but it also contains bible references which would work nicely as a custom module... How would you tip the scale?

Thanks,

Offhand I don't know how long the Rules are, so I don't know how much work this would be, but technically, you could do both. The Custom module allow much more flexibility, but the searching capabilities and such are nowhere near as nice as the version would allow. Sometimes versions force you to make artificial breaks in the text, which can be awkward and make the text rather cumbersome. If such is the case, go for the Custom Module option. If you really want to focus on the Bible Links, go user module.

So mostly, I think I would lean toward Custom module, but if you can, maybe do both :)
