Hi Daniel ..........

Thanks for your feedback and your encouragement.

SwordReader ought now to allow everything by way of pathing and .confs 
thatBibleCS does.  The executable and .dll can go in any directory you 
want as long as it follows the same rules as any other Sword app.  Plus, 
of course it handles commentaries as well as bibles.  It still is able 
to use a directory off the sword directory called 'books' if  such a 
directory is there, but I don't mention that in the install.txt because 
I find it a bit bizarre and might take the feature out unless anyone 
wants to come up with a reason for leaving it in.

I noticed that NET bible displays some tags, and I'm going to do 
something about that quite soon.  But give me an example of your 
experience so I can check that out too.  Which module are you looking at 
(and what note)?

I'm aware of that one, but I'm very new to Windows Mobile, so I haven't 
yet worked out how to make it paint the screen when it ought.  If anyone 
has any ideas, please speak up .........  I'm working on it!

Now that's odd!  I've got an icon on my shortcut.  Did you create the 
shortcut using the method I suggest? (File Explorer/Edit/Copy on the 
.exe and File Explorer/Edit/Paste Shortcut to make the shortcut?)  My OS 
is mobile 5.1.195 (although I doubt this feature would change much from 
version to version).

God bless,
