I meant that the whole thing works.  I had (wrongly) assumed that the
Windows release of Sword 1.5.1 could handle ThML formatted file and I had
forgotten that it was only available on the alpha page.  I guess that this
isn't going to be the day for me to move the complete MHC to the regular
file tree and post the new JFB. :)

I think it works.  I had thought someone else put some work into it after
the initial cut because all of the ThML filters I've tried worked fine.  I
don't know RTF at all myself, but all of the filters were produced using the
GBF filters as a model.

It came straight from CCEL.
