In general the information for Sword users is scattered around and in
some places not up to date. It needs restructuring. I mean, there are
BibleCS help, sword-support, sword-bugs, sword-feedback, forums,
developer wiki, www-pages, sourceforge pages... Some of them are rarely

But back to BibleCS - I don't know if there are major defects.
Sword-support list gets some FAQ but they don't touch the BibleCS usage
directly. I don't have MSWindows open right now but I can read the
BibleCS docs later and see if I find anything.

BTW, I have thought that sword-support needs written FAQ. At least these
are important items:
- "Can you send me Bibles?"
	* explanation of the nature of Crosswire and polite answer that
	  we don't do such work. Possibly better than not answering at
- "Why don't you have xyz module? Is it possible to get it?"
	* explanation how we get our modules. Situation of some
	  frequently asked modules (NASB, NIV, Portuguese...)
- General help for asking help :)
	* the very usual answer is "we need more information before we
	  can answer". Explanation of what we want.

Would wiki be the right place for end user FAQ?
