Chris, etc.,

I have been mostly lurking for some time and have seen this question quite
often also.  I've also been looking, with baited breath, for an answer that
I could understand for the same period of time  ;  )  

I am operating in "Windoze" 95/NT and am not a programmer, but am more of a
hacker.  I have edited modules using replace utilities, etc. and some funky
other stuff to remove the CR-LF characters, but I still don't have a clue
how to *create* a module.

Can a utility be created that will convert some form of delimited file into
a sword compatible format?

Sorry to beat this issue to death, and I'm sorry I'm not at the caliber of
the rest of you to understand what has been presented in the past.
