Hello Wolfgang,

thanks for you kind response. Could you tell us a little more about your 
project (many here can't read german websites)? What are your aims, and how 
do you want to reach them technically? I am not an OSIS expert, but others in 
here are. Maybe we can join forces somehow?

I appreciate your motivation and your willingness to use OpenSource to spread 
the bible.
