Hi David,

I'm still currently actively developing a mac os x version.You can get 
it and its source at 
http://www.heathmoor.plus.com/downloads/MacSword5src.sit and the app at 
http://www.heathmoor.plus.com/downloads/MacSword5.app.sit .

The program works well and is quite functional, but still retains a few 
bugs and lacks a couple of features.

Note: The program currently requires the modules to be unzipped in the 
same folder as it is.

The best thing for you to do, I think, is to download what I've done 
and have a play and see what you think. I welcome any suggestions ideas 
or code.

Contact me directly if you want to get involved.

God speed,
