That's very interesting.

Even before Go Bible was adopted by CrossWire, we knew that Jolon Faichney
had toyed with the concept of better font support for phones with inadequate
firmware coverage. He never made enough progress as to complete such a task,
though what he did attempt is probably still there, albeit commented out of
the source code.

If SIL have modified GoBibleCore to make use of Graphite, then in the spirit
of open source software, we should be able to learn from them how to take
advantage of this in general, not just for SIL's own use.

One of the SIL programmers is active in the Go Bible project.
Erik Brommers in Dallas has continuing responsibility to develop Go Bible
Creator support for XHTML_TE.
This is already included in the source code for the SymScroll branch that
Daniel has been developing.

I should therefore quiz Erik on this topic, and see if we can make some

Thanks for the heads up.  Thanks too for the further gen about Android OS
and iOS.
