Thanks DM & Daniel. I'll try KJV, as it seems sufficient, and besides visiting Vietnam and enjoying their signs, I can't read it... :)
I'll proceed with the programmatic checking, and see if it's not too stressful for a portable device... :)
And I'll keep an eye out for osis2mod changes regarding intros – hopefully someone will do a dummy module for testing purposes once we support all of these? :)
I'm thinking that if we were to ever distribute the MSG, it would be cool to have testament intros, as I quite enjoy Eugene's introductions. :)
Thanks heaps, ybic
