Check into the diatheke CGI.  It's located in /apps/console/diatheke of
the Sword CVS.  It's up and running at http://bible.gotjesus.org.  It's
also normally running at www.crosswire.org/sword/bible and
www.crosswire.org/sword/diatheke normally has its information page, but
both are down until Troy finishes work on the server.
