Hi David ..........

Thanks for this.  I'll make a build and try it on my device and report back.

It displays properly with the build from subversion 57, and your last 
two commits bring it to ver. 59, so the problem is new.  Sorry.

The advantages are obvious.  I've never tried the Olive Tree stuff; as 
soon as I got my Ppc (September), I found that the original version of 
SwordReader was useable and never bothered with anything else.  But I 
agree the long delay in re-painting SwordReader screens is bearable but 
very annoying.  Now I'm playing about with installer stuff, I probably 
won't do any more work on the SwordReader stuff for a while.  I'd like 
to make cross refs work, but that should be fairly quick and will only 
affect simplenavigator.cpp.  Beyond that, I think I'll concentrate on 
the installation of modules.  If you have any thoughts on the best 
process for that, please say.

God bless,
