I agree the blue underline isn't good.
It would be nice to have some sort of visual queue that there was 
something to click on though.

I've tried various ideas in my mind but not come up with an ideal 
solution. Maybe a simple light grey underline would work well?

The good news is that we can have several stylesheets and let the user 
pick the view they like best. For example we could have a layout for 
printing that looked like normal Bible pages, and views optimized for 
study, for reading, etc, etc.

javalobby.org had a special deal with Sun a few weeks ago and they did a 
preview download. I think it is still available. theserverside.com gave 
me the link to it.

The stylesheet is in resource/xsl/cswing/simple.xsl
Even if you don't know XSL some of it should make sense.

If I recall correctly there are some options in the tools menu for 
picking which view you get, so you can copy simple.xsl to andy.xsl or
