Greetings

I've downloaded Sword and Bibletime for Linux and I'm very impressed. However
there's a bug in your Septuagint module: When the greek s (sigma) is the last
letter in a word it becomes a different letter (final sigma or sigma1). See
attachment. Perhaps you could use 'v' to transcribe it, but it seems to be used
for the letter known as 'omega1'. However omega1 is very rare whereas sigma1 is
very frequent. Perhaps it relies on a special allegoritm, like 's followed by
space' = 'sigam1' ? I thinks this must a problem because of the way many
programs treat space.

I would like to help with this if you want me to. I've helped make many unicode
fonts as part of the ucs-initiative http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs-fonts.html
If you're interested I could make a bdf-font that contains all the needed greek
characters for Bibletime so you don't have to use the symbolfont. I could also
make a hebrew font for you. You could also switch to utf-8 unicode. 

In the danish bible there is problem with  (capital oslash) that has become .
That can be fixed with a simple search and replace. What does the <WTH*> and
<WTG*> tags mean?
