[sword-devel] New Sword Website: Drum roll please...

Very nice! It works well for me.

It does bring up a question again. Is BibleCS the official name now? In the 
help files I have simply called it the Sword. It was my impression that The 
Sword Project was bigger than the win32 software. And the program was often 
referred to as simply the Sword on the developers list. I have thought that 
both The Sword Project and the Sword were confusing names for the program. 
So, should I edit the help files to say BibleCS instead of the Sword? (Ok, 
I will bite. What is CS anyway? Computer Software, CrossWire Software, 
Christian Software, Computer Sword, or what?) It will be even more 
confusing if the web site uses one name while the help files use another.

Also, in the projects/volunteers section, perhaps you could add the win32 
help files (Sword.chm) as a volunteer project. I am sure there are better 
ways to format the help file pages and topics. If people with a talent for 
this kind of documentation want to volunteer I would be glad to help them 
make improvements and/or take over. And it could be a team effort--writers 
(content and html), proofreaders (spelling and grammar), graphic artists 
(screen shots and other images), and testers (verify the information is 
complete and correct and clear). It also would be nice to translate it into 
other languages. And all this takes some coordinating to keep the links in 
the TOC and Index working and up to date. Sounds a lot like creating a web 
site and it is similar. What do you think?
