Hi David .........

I did that - and now I have the new icon on the mobile ...  but it's not 
quite so impressive when it's 'pocket sized' .....  ah well .......

It's very workable now.  The remaining problems are all down to the slow 
speed of the device with heavily tagged stuff.  NET takes forever to 
show the footnotes; the workaround is to use NETnotes .....  If Lynn 
does come on board, we could negotiate with bible.org for a soText 
version.  I got on quite well with them when we were building the NET 
and NETnotes modules, so they might go for it when we tell them why. 

BTW - I've put the latest code for the installer in svn if you want to 
look.  I've now got all the way except for the actual copying of the new 
files over to the mobile device, so a few more hours work should see it 
complete.  It uses one of the ms .dll's for the  System:: calls I've 
included.  I take it this won't cause a problem on any normal breed of 
Windows? (I think it calls up MSCore.dll or something with a similar 
name).  I'm a bit naive about high level calls in Windows, so if I've 
put anything in that will break on anything that isn't Windows XP, 
someone ought to tell me please!

God bless,
