	Like the tab impl.  It looks nice and does improve the usability very much.

	What Joachim said is correct:

	Use putty.exe (or whatever your SSH client is) to ssh into crosswire.

Then cd to your sandbox and update it with everyone else's commited changes:
	cd ~sword/html/biblenew/delbourne
	cvs update

Then do you work.  You can either edit the files right on the box or by 
uploading files to this directory]

Test them with your sandbox URL:


When you have something you would like to commit, then:

	cvs commit

(it's gonna take you to VI to edit your comments on the commit, if 
you're not sure about VI, just:

If it's been a long time since you last did a: cvs update, then you 
should probably type that before the cvs commit.  The update will try to 
merge other peoples changes in with your current code before you commit 
so you can resolve any conflicts.

Thanks for your help!
