I found some German commentaries and lexikons on the homepage of OnlineBible
( http://www.onlinebible.org ) and intend to make them available for SWORD, which has at the moment
no German lex / comm. As I'm new to module conversion, I've several questions to the experts:
(BTW, Chris Little is the right man to contact concerning this in the future, isn't he?)

1. Has someone anything to say against these modules being available for SWORD?

2. I got to know that you got several bibles from the library of OnlineBible. So, what was about
getting the right to convert and distribute them from the team of OnlineBible? What difficulties
will I encounter trying to get these right for the German lex / comm, including copyright issues?

3. Will your OnlineBible2SWORD filter program do the job of lex / comm conversion, too? What
further work has to be done to create a ready module?

4. And, finally, to whom shall I deliver the finished modules?

P.S.: My trial to get more German modules for BibleTime is my first contribution to further the
spread of God's Word and divine teaching, to help building His kingdom.

So long && Thanx ...
