I can see you point - but it actually seems to work quite well the way
in which it has been put together. I'm finding it useful.

I think it will be. Dave says he submitted it about two years ago.
I'll forward this to him - I don't think he's on the list. I hadn't
made any comparisons - I'd assumed that as it was prepared from a CCEL
download, it would be accurately reproduced. I'll get the original down
from CCEL and take a look. Thanks for that information. It's a pity -
he's clearly gone to a lot of work preparing it, but you must be the
judge of its suitability to be a Sword official release. Thanks for
your trouble Chris.
