Thanks for that.  It's very different from the Calvin I have already. 
It will be interesting to compare.  I've just looked at Matthew 2:1 - 
there's something fascinating that I don't understand.  BibleCS and 
bpbible (the Mozilla based front end from 
http://benpmorgan.googlepages.com/bpbible ) each show this passage as 
though it's two different modules.  Take a look!  I suspect the problem 
might be with bpbible.  Also, there appear to be some footnotes in this 
passage that don't contain anything when viewed under either of the 
above frontends.  These show empty both in BibleCS and bpbible.  This 
same passage shows perfectly well in BibleDesktop complete with 
footnotes properly handled.  This fascinates me.  It seems unlikely that 
the problem is in the module, but I may be wrong!

I'm about to load it into SwordReader and try that!

Anyhow, Luke thanks for all your work.  It's a great module and will 
prove useful to us all.

God bless,
