Quick question about introductions in modules:

Is there any way to detect if a module contains these introductions?

Right now PocketSword will display chapter intros if they exist (well, in v1.4.3, which is currently "in review" with Apple).
After that, I am thinking about the rest of these intros.
Do I programmatically check 69 different locations (well, for Bibles with 66 books) to test for
66 lots of (book intro != NULL)
2 lots of (testament intro != NULL)
1 lot of (module intro != NULL)
and then know whether to offer a user to select these intros to view?

Or is there a simpler way of knowing if these exist?

Also, is there an English module that contains various of these intros that I can use for testing purposes? (actually, non-English will work as well, but I just won't be able to read the content!)

Thanks heaps, ybic
	nic...  :)

ps: alternatively, I could check to see if I'm displaying chapter 1 & then include the book intro at the top.
pps: along these lines, I could check if we're viewing the first book in a testament & then display the testament intro at the top as well?
ppps: and, carrying on, check if we're viewing the first book in the first testament in a module, and display the module intro as well?

pppps: However, all of these ps' will make things a little more messy for the reader...  :/
