	Noted and reproduced your bug.  Thanks.  I'll get right on it.  There 
is special code that says, "Hey, when I'm doing a word lookup, see if it 
is surrounded by <> or (); if so, strip those off cuz we're probably a 
strongs number."  Well, problem is, the RTF control returns the current 
word as "<0776>."  Strange, but we can take care of it.  It's definitely 
a windows frontend thing.  Thanks again for reporting it.
