Yes, you should use the font for the module that the data is from. If 
you are viewing the KJV and getting data from StrongsGreek (or whatever 
the module/book name is) you should use the font of StrongsGreek and not 
the KJV.

By asking the Book for the preferred font, it will get the most closely 
bound font. The font can be specified by BD's properties, by the Book's 
conf, by the user for the language or by the user for the Book.

Some Strong's info is entirely in latin script. Some, currently in beta, 
give the headword in Greek and the definition in English. Getting the 
setting from the Book would give the user what they have specified.

In Him,
