with rc4 this is what I found:
1. personal commentary doesn't work
2. help files still don't work (all i get is hh.exe program termination
error. Just so you know the problem is probably with the sword.chm. If I
goto the directory and click on it it makes hh.exe crash without even
loading it from sword. Sword did not however load the index.html.
3. All the modules looked good accept for NAB. Ester1:1-3 looked like
1(A:1) In the second year of the reign of the great King Ahasuerus, on
the first day of Nisan, Mordecai, son of Jair, son of Shimei, son of
Kish, of the tribe of Benjamin, had a dream. (A:2) He was a Jew residing
in the city of Susa, a prominent man who served at the king's court,
(A:3) and one of the captives whom Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, had
taken from Jerusalem with Jeconiah, king of Judah. (A:4) This was his
dream. There was noise and tumult, thunder and earthquake-confusion upon
the earth. (A:5) Two great dragons came on, both poised for combat. They
uttered a mighty cry, (A:6) and at their cry every nation prepared for
war, to fight against the race of the just. (A:7) It was a dark and
gloomy day. Tribulation and distress, evil and great confusion, lay upon
the earth. (A:8) The whole race of the just were dismayed with fear of
the evils to come upon them, and were at the point of destruction. (A:9)
Then they cried out to God, and as they cried, there appeared to come
forth a great river, a flood of water from a little spring. (A:10) The
light of the sun broke forth; the lowly were exalted and they devoured
the nobles. (A:11) Having seen this dream and what God intended to do,
Mordecai awoke. He kept it in mind, and tried in every way, until night,
to understand its meaning. (A:12) Mordecai lodged at the court with
Bagathan and Thares, two eunuchs of the king who were court guards.
(A:13) He overheard them plotting, investigated their plans, and
discovered that they were preparing to lay hands on King Ahasuerus. So
he informed the king about them, (A:14) and the king had the two eunuchs
questioned and, upon their confession, put to death. (A:15) Then the
king had these things recorded; Mordecai, too, put them into writing.
(A:16) The king also appointed Mordecai to serve at the court, and
rewarded him for his actions. (A:17) Haman, however, son of Hammedatha
the Agagite, who was in high honor with the king, sought to harm
Mordecai and his people because of the two eunuchs of the king. During
the reign of Ahasuerus-this was the Ahasuerus who ruled over a hundred
and twenty-seven provinces from India to Ethiopia- 2while he was
occupying the royal throne in the stronghold of Susa, 3in the third year
of his reign, he presided over a feast for all his officers and
ministers: the Persian and Median aristocracy, the nobles, and the
governors of the provinces. 
This was the only problem though all the other modules looked good.
