Re: Message by John Dudeck:

More info later on a number of issues, but since this has been raised, I 
have not been able to get internal hyperlinks to work either for any 
type of document. This is true for Xiphos, BibleTime and BibleDesktop.

The ability to use internal hyperlinks would enable indexes, tables of 
contents, Scripture indexes, etc., in addition to allowing readers to 
refer to other sections. Bible passage references seem to work well for 
most front-ends.

I fully understand if the functionality (described in the OSIS doc) is 
just not there yet. But some info would be helpful.

The only doc seems to be regarding General Books, linking to headed 
sections, but I cannot seem to make even that work.

John: We are all volunteers here working on many projects. This may take 
some time for both of us.

Great News!
God created you, owns you and gave you commands to obey.
You have disobeyed God - as your conscience very well attests to you.
God's holiness and justice compel Him to punish you in Hell.
Jesus Christ became Man, was crucified, buried and rose from the dead
as a substitute for all who trust in Him, redeeming them from Hell.
If you repent (turn from your sin) and believe (trust) in Jesus Christ,
you will go to Heaven. Otherwise you will go to Hell.
Warning! Good works are a result, not cause, of saving trust.
