	My apologies for not getting back with you.  I really don't know the 
sources of these modules beyond what is mentioned in their .conf file. 
I'd guess Heretics would be from CCEL, and if so, then correcting that 
module AT CCEL and then exporting it as OSIS (I believe they have this 
feature on their website), and importing into SWORD would be your best 
bet.  Since there are not many modules for which we house authoritive 
copies, correcting at the source usually is the recommended way to go. 
And we need to do a better job keeping the Source= entries in our .conf 
files useful.  Your help on these 2 modules (in correcting and 
attributing source) would be very appreciated.  Please know that you 
were not ignored on purpose, but my personal hope was that someone more 
in-the-know on the subject would have responded.

	Hope this helps.  We would love for you to take maintenence ownership 
of our Portugese modules so you can give good answers to questions like 
your own, in the future.  Foreign language Bibles are a challenge for us 
to maintain, as we often have difficulty communicating with publishers, 
and even have a lack of insight as to what use a text may have in a 
given culture.  Your unique position to know and handle these items 
would be of great value to the project.
