If you are able to get permission to use/distribute this Turkish NT please let
me know! I would like to make a Unicode version. The limitation with SWORD
right now is that in order to use many translations with non-latin character
sets you have to encode them in one of the many different encoding "standards"
and then use an X server or Windows version designed/patched for that encoding
scheme. Any chance of Unicode support in SWORD, Troy?
