Hi Chris!

I have some questions about your new BHS module.

-Which unicode font is working for this module? Where can I get it?
-Can you please put somewhere a screenshot online or send it in a private 
eMail to me so I can compare BibleTime's rendering results with the correct 

Thank you for all your work! Sword is now really progressing fast!
Troy, you're doing a great job!
