Thanks.  I'm surprised I'm one of few who use the detached window.  It 
might be worth me saying why.

Example:  I'm looking at the beginning of John's gospel.  It obviously 
has some similarity to Genesis 1.  I want to look at Gen. 1:1 and John 
1:1 at the same time.  Then I want to look at various bible versions for 
each.  Xiphos lets me do that with the detached window for one version.

Next:  I'm looking at a particular passage.  I want the complete chapter 
on screen in more than one version.  Again, this works fine with Xiphos 
using detached windows.

Third: I use the Revised Common Lectionary most weeks at church.  I can 
have all four readings for the day on screen at the same time.  This 
really is a big help when thinking about them prior to the worship ....

And so on ....  I really appreciate the flexibility to do all of those 
things.  I wonder why others don't have similar requirements.

After all that, thanks for Xiphos.  It's just great!

God bless,
