Hey Everyone,

    Jerry makes a good point, however all that needs to be done is change
those names in the BibleCS program before we launch the website and maybe
have a glossary so that old users will have a clue. I know that David Trotz
has even said that he has a contact that will do a new splash screen for
BibleCS once we have a name glued down. So once we agree on the naming
conventions then we just need to change the things that have the 'wrong'

In Christ,
