Thanks for the quick review, I'm glad you like it! Serious credit to 
JSword which gives me the HTML required for rendering.

Absolutely. Do you like the way they are displayed in BibleDesktop, or 
is there an alternate presentation which you prefer? (I have not 
researched these in depth).

I have a few additional questions:
1) I've been looking at the Illustrated New Testament commentary, does 
it actually contain images? Do/can commentaries contain images?
2) Any idea where the map and images modules are? No modules are listed 
for this categories on crosswire.org.
