[sword-devel] Re ndering of Hebrew/Greek Text

Dear Stephen,

Our default strongs lexica do not include the Hebrew and Greek
characters.  I believe we have a new one in beta which does include
them, and I'm almost certain Karl has one in the xiphos.org repo.  I
faintly remember something like 'realgreek' and 'realhebrew' for
names...  Hope this helps.
