Thanks for the URL!  This is the module against which I've been testing
the stepdump utility.  I wanted to post the URL on the list to everyone,
but couldn't remember where it was.

All that said, The stepdump utility uses the Viewable.idx file which
sequencially displays all viewable chunks in the module.

I believe the Sections.idx file will give us something more useful for
jumping to, at least, the correct chapter, then we can scan for the
verse.  But I'm thinking the 2.0 spec has to provide for a verse
offset:size entry somewhere.  Anyway, thanks again for the URL.  Anyone
know why Parsons can actually publish that URL?  Did they receive rights
to release a free NKJV STEP module?  If so, when this driver is done,
we'll have, at least, one more modern translation that is freely
