[sword-devel] Strongs and Real Strongs

The Strongs(Greek|Hebrew) modules in beta should be essentially the same 
as the StrongsReal(Greek|Hebrew). It probably needs an update to the 
latest versions of its source docs, and I know it has a number of 
encoding problems in the Hebrew module, but I'll do a quick cleanup and 
push the updates to the public repository in the next few days.

The reason for not having put them in public previously is that they are 
TEI modules, which were not reliably supported in all of the frontends 
~3 years ago when the modules were last updated. At this point, any 
frontend that doesn't support TEI needs to be left behind. (I'm not 
aware of any that are so lacking.)

The Strong module in beta is intended to do something akin to a combined 
Strongs(Greek|Hebrew) and Karl's Inverted lexicons, all in one. It 
suffers from a bug somewhere (either in the library or the module 
utilities) that breaks LD entry linking, so that may not appear in 
public very soon.
