This constitutes altering text presentation.  Whenever possible, we do not
do this or allow this because it is not our right to choose presentation
of books that we did not author.  We try to (and need to) maintain as 
much as possible of the presentation format of text editions.

We also shouldn't be writing filters and otherwise modifying Sword for 
everyone who comes along declaring that something is unbiblical.  Will you 
also write a filter to convert instances of Lord back to YWHW because it 
is an affront to God that we try to hide his name?  Or better, back to 
Hebrew because it is an affront to God that we should render his name in 
any but His Chosen Language?
