Almost forget, the above is the simple version. However, if you want
to integrate with user options/preferences things will be a little bit
complex, because you need to format the xslt transform using user
options/preferences. And the source book for info (eg:
bible,Hebrew/Greek def book) you also need to get it from user
options/preferences (from preferred book section).

And for performance (user perceived performance) I need to wrap the
above code using Swing EDT for tooltip displaying, due to swing slow
parsing html code
