[sword-devel] RusSynodal in experimental

Sorry, the update that was posted earlier wasn't intended to be 
published or downloaded by anyone, since I was still in the middle of 
testing (both it and the updated Windows InstallManager.exe). The 
current updates to the Synodal and OCS Elizabeth Bibles are tested and 
should be correct.

I don't know what you mean by "slavic character set". I can think of 3 
ways to interpret that:

1) You might mean that you would like to see the original orthography, 
since it has been modernized in CSlElizabeth. We could add another OCS 
Bible in a non-updated orthography, but we don't have such a text currently.

2) You might mean that you would like to see it in an OCS-style font, 
like you'd see in older printed books. For that, you're free to change 
the font to any Unicode font.

3) You might mean that you would like to see the text written in the 
glagolitic script. We won't be offering that, except perhaps via 
transliteration, in the future.

3Macc and 2Esd are not included in the Elizabeth Bible (at least not the 
version we have).

Since there are only a few front ends that can support the Synodal 
versification, there isn't much need for the content to be updated. 
Nothing in the experimental repository is intended for day-to-day use by 
actual users, so it is a very low priority.
