Module file format is open standard?
I don't know if my subject title for this post is the correct terminology or not. I am wanting to know if modules that I create in MacSword are proprietary or not? I don't want to get a year or more into making some and find that my work is locked into something that I can't extract if the SWORD, God forbid, goes out of development.

Well, our internal module format is open in that the source codes are freely accessible.
Normally the source format you use to create a module is one of OSIS, THML or the like which are open standards. You can look them up at Wikipedia.
If you are talking about a commentary module created in MacSword then this module will work on any other SWORD software and is build using our internal module format.
