[sword-devel] question about WAP online Bibles...

I was mainly thinking of just having a Bible search function (eg: you 
enter "john 3:16" and it returns "for God ..."; or enter "john 3" for 
similar results) and a word search (eg: enter "For Loved God World Son" 
and it would return "john 3:16" as well as the text "for God ...")

haven't really thought anything more than that atm, but it would be 
good to be able to select your Bible translation, and also be able to 
select a commentary to instead look up a verse in...  :)

I'd be interested in having a look at whatever you come up with for 
WAP...  :)  could be very cool, but I'm not sure how functional it 
would be for serious Bible study!  ;)
