I'm still trying to get a Sword DLL for Windows.... let alone use it.

Unfortunately, there is presently no solution for non-programmers to make
modules, IMO.  You can use the GBF or other converters in the source tree
if you can compile them--which generally requires you to be running
linux.  (I figure if you're not a programmer, you don't have compilers
lying around you Win32 machine.)

I'd like to work on a nice GUI module editor for Win32, if not
cross-platform, but I'm probably going to have to wait until I can figure
out how to use a sword.dll in VB or such.  

I've also got some perl converters in the works, and those should work on
Win32 for people who grab ActiveState's Perl for Win32.  But that won't
look as nice (and be as appealing to use for the average user) as a GUI
editor--something I feel is lacking from ALL of the Bible software I've
seen on the market.
