Hi Chris!

I admire your work! You are creating new modules so fast!
I hope the other Bible projects have no Chris ;)


> I re-posted two OLD modules that were removed a while ago: the
> Analytical-Literal Translation (ALT) and Gill's Expositor (Gill).  Both
> are locked.
> I also made two REALLY COOL new modules that no other Bible software has
> yet.  I don't even think any other Bible software has anything in these
> languages....  There's a Thai translation of the KJV (ThaiKJV), which is
> unlocked.  And there's a Tamil Bible, which is locked.  I spent 2
> _whole_ days trying to get this Tamil script out of a font-encoding and
> into Unicode, but it looks fantastic.  Tamil has some very unusual
> characteristics, such as letters that are split onto both sides of
> another letter, but the rendering looks faithful to the original.  It
> requires a font with Tamil support, such as Arial Unicode MS or Code2000
> (to which it is set by default).  I threw up a screenshot of the Tamil
> (left window) and Thai (right window) modules at
> http://www.crosswire.org/~chrislit/tamilthai.jpg.
> Enjoy. :)
