Hi Manfred,

Good to hear news about MacSword. I was almost beginnig to beleive  
that MacSword was begining to die.

About search. Recently I noticed a small problem with the indexes.  
When you first use MacSword search, after it indexes the book in  
question, if you change the system language in System Preferences >  
International, then you will no longer be able to use search because  
the index was created using the name of the books of the language  
originally used. It still searches and it still displays the results  
but every verse will be displayed as Revelation of John.
