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.

God bless,
