I'm unable to reproduce any of this using or .33.  Can anyone
else?  Perhaps someone with Win98?

For me, Barnes Gen 7:1 is blank (which is correct) and behaves normally.
Looking up 8804 in Thayer takes me to the final entry (05944).

I don't know of anything more we can do with Sword to make it work on
your machine.  The only thing I can think to suggest would be upgrading
IE 4.0 to 5.5.  It shouldn't increase the overhead of your machine very
much, if at all.  Has anyone else got a machine with IE4 who could test
to see if Sword has problems with it?
