The conversion tool I mentioned
http://www.jeff-jackson.com/Religion/netprogram.zip is not my tool, and has
nothing to do with the Sword Project. Jeff Jackson created it to help
convert the NET Bible to a format that can be imported into Bible Works.
(BW= BibleWorks http://bibleworks.com ) Jeff's web site is
I mentioned it to Chris, because he is the pumpkin holder for Sword module
creation. He wanted to take a look at Jeff's list of errors in the NET
Bible's markup to make sure there was nothing there that he had not caught
himself when converting NET to a Sword module.
The Sword Project does not have permision, as of yet, to distribute the NET
Bible as a module.
I have not tried Jeff's tool myself, but it is supposed to work. I know many
BW users have been successful. I'm not sure what format it spits out, but it
should be able to be used to create a Sword module. If you want to try your
hand at it, the Sword module creation documentation can be found at
by grace alone,
