I don't know if anyone would necessarily confuse STEP with the original 
STEP, but I certainly don't think anyone would mistake STEP for a 
(J)Sword front end.

It's fairly difficult to locate any mention of CrossWire, JSword, Sword, 
or any of the dozens of people who have done a lot more to make STEP 
possible than literally ANYONE listed on this page:

I don't see any mention of CrossWire, JSword, or Sword in your press 
release or anywhere on stepbible.org. You're standing on the shoulders 
of giants, but you are frauds pretending that you've built a skyscraper 
entirely by yourselves.

(As an aside, Paul Esposito is not the editor/translator of the 
Apostolic Bible Polyglot, as 
states. Also, the "If you see an error in the following please contact 
us." link on the same page doesn't go anywhere.)
