DM, Sabastien,
Thanks for your references on encoding. I have read about encodings and Now  
I need a practical example of making it thru the module process. Let's say I  
have an alpha with an accent (I use PSPad to get the codes in right) and I 
have  this in XXX.imp.  When I bring this into NotePad with UTF-8 as encoding  
type (Format is also Greek script) it looks just fine.  Then I run it  thru 
"imp2ld XXX.imp XXX 2" to get XXX.dat and XXX.idx.  No errors, no  problems.  The 
XXX.conf  file has Encoding=UTF-8.  But when I  fire up BibleCS and look at 
XXX in the LD pane I see a box where I  am expecting an accented alpha. 
Unfortunately I know of no accented Greek  text that I can reverse engineer to see 
where I am going wrong. Without  clear answers at this point
I have resigned to include only unaccented Greek text. If there are better  
tools out there to ensure I am on the right track please let me know.
In His Grace,
