Is there an electronic edition? What about the free CD-ROM?
   Every classic reference and thinline edition comes with the option of
   receiving a CD-ROM with the complete text of the Bible. (A postcard
   included with the Bible explains how to order the free CD.) The CD
   includes the ESV and King James text, Nave's Topical Bible, Strong's
   Concordance, maps, and Crossway's Classic Bible Commentary, Exploring
   the Old Testament, Exploring the New Testament, and the Romans volume
   of the Preaching the Word series. The text of most of the additional
   titles is in standard STEP format, though the text of the Bible itself
   is not. The CD is produced by iExalt Electronic Publishing and is for
   Windows 95 and later.

So the answer is no, the ESV text is not in STEP format
