Hi Troy

Hope your are being blessed in every way.

I am a big fan of the KDE app KVocTrain and use it for both greek and Hebrew. 
It has some really neat features like word recognition rating, inline 
editing, and the ability to export to a .csv file.

I mention this not to discourage you from your good work but to point out what 
might be a distant target at this early stage, if you aren't aware of it. 
KVocTrain is part of the "Edutainment" sources.

I also have been working on extensive unicode vocab lists, because KDE now 
displays Hebrew well, including final kaf with shewa or qamats.  I am 95% on 
the way to having all of Seow's 835 words (Hebrew) and Mounce's (Greek) Words 
occurring 10 times and up. An earlier version of the Seow list can be grabbed 
from http://www.jesuscentral.net/jc_resources.html

in Christ we stand
