Thanks for the suggestion.  I can't see any of the deutero-canon books 
in any of the Sword locale files.  The relevant bits from my canon*.h 
file are:

   {"Judith", "Jdt", "Jdt", 16},
   {"Esther (Greek)", "EsthGr", "EsthGr", 7},
   {"Wisdom", "Wis", "Wis", 19},


// Esther (Greek)
   13, 12, 6, 18, 19, 16, 24,

The original NRSVA canon header includes EsthGr, so I tried and 
unmodified original.  I still got Revelation.  I think EsthGr must be a 
valid abbreviation, since
./lookup webbe_a "EsthGr 2:1" seems to find the book, but returns an 
empty verse.  I'm really puzzled now.

God bless,        Barry.
