Well, I've got two options for you, neither of which is probably going to 
help you immediately (unless you want to help finish/update one of them).

The first is ActiveDiatheke.  It is an ActiveX control interface to 
Sword, using the diatheke as a core.  It's based on Sword 1.5.2 or 1.5.3, 
however, so it could use an update.  As I recall, the last version was 
crashing also.

The second option is an ISAPI version of diatheke.  I'll work on this as
soon as I get a chance.  Maybe this weekend I will get a chance to
update/fix diatheke, then doing the ISAPI version will be pretty simple.
