	Are you talking about the initial CD splash screen?  If so, allowing a
simple button that, when pressed, pulls up a browser pointing to an url
on the CD is very simple.  I almost would think that a church might want
to just create their own splash screen.  I'm all for either.  If you
would like, I will add an option to the current splash screen that
checks a config file for a church url and button label, and if it finds
one, will place the button on the splash screen.  Let me know if this is
what you are thinking.

> It could contain extras like our church phone directory, photos, a map to

> http://www.newheartworship.org , New convert studies. etc... etc....

> Larger churches could make up their own master and have it printed off or
> if you desired to go into the middle man area they could order through
> you.
> Maybe a Sword/Church specific Master Label could be adopted.
> Or maybe I'm just dreaming.

> If the capability already exists in the Windows version to make outside
> links I would be thrilled.
