The previous directive to close these discussions extends to this 
thread, as well.  The same conditions apply for action:

CrossWire considers the DSS materials you post on your website to be 
under copyright and not legal for you to distribute.  Our policy is to 
not allow illegal content to be posted or linked to on sword-devel.  
Please refrain from making this material available from the link you 
have posted here on sword-devel or your ability to post to sword-devel 
will be revoked.

Sincerely, with all good wishes,
