  	Great if it is as simple as that!

	Seems you have better information than me on this aspect.

	Some doubts:

	Doesn’t the fact that SBB sponsored the project changes
anything?  Or in other words, would the lifespan of mr William Cabell
BROWN the only thing we would have to check?

  	The question is, do someone have it already?  I haven’t, and
it needs MS Windows, which I haven’t too.  So for me it would be
really difficult, as I would have to procure a machine, MS Windows and
the software itself.

    	I would propose putting it for proofreading at PGDP Europe.  I
would have to procure an additional copy of Tradução Brasileira, or
would someone else be able to do that?  Also, I will only be able to
start scanning once I do some major surgery on my old G3, as its disk
is dying.
