  There was some discussion on this list a few months ago asking why 
BibleCS was still so heavily promoted on the website.  I know there was 
overwhelming feeling that things should change.  They did not!

Valiant attempts were made years ago by David Trotz to improve the 
appearance and usability of BibleCS - but David left the project a few 
years ago.  There are now at least four excellent front-ends that can 
run under Windows and the web-site ought to reflect that, and encourage 
the new user to try each of them.

Could I ask all of you to visit the web-site and try to behave as though 
you know nothing about the Sword Project.  Or better still, have a 
friend go through it and then see what impression they are left with.  
It's quite an eye-opener.

God bless,        Barry.
