  No problem, I'm glad to help. :-)

  That was the same feeling I had, although I think we are being out voted.

  Well, if it makes you feel any better, all of those "for Windows" splash 
screens were made in Linux using the Gimp. :-) I did emphasize "for Windows" 
somewhat since the Windows GUI is the only one called "The Sword Project," 
although I guess I could arrange to make it less emphasized. Hopefully, since 
I've been given the opportunity to work on the BibleTime and GnomeSword 
splash screens I can do something with out *ahem* Windows on it. ;-)

  Thanks, Skip!
