Hello all.

I just wanted to announce myself to the list.  My main interests for this 
project are in localization (don't let my name fool you, I speak fluent 
Vietnamese, and I'm getting started on Croatian).  I also might be able to 
help out with the "writing" stuff.  I don't know if I'll be able to help with 
any technical docs, but I'd be happy to contact publishers for licenses to 
distribute and all.

I have a question about the localization stuff.  Which encoding are we to use 
when we write the localization files?  Unicode?  Some funky M$ encoding?  As 
soon as I figure this out I'll get started on the Vietnamese files.  I also 
see that there's no Croatian Bible text available for SWORD, but there is one 
for BibleDataBase.  I'd be happy to work on converting this as well, again as 
soon as I hear what the preferred encoding is for the text modules.

God bless!
