Doing a little more probing, BPBible Portable handled it well, but they
display in different widgets since I built my maps with imp2ld rather than

I'll probably rebuild using imp2gbs for uniformity.

I know BP isn't maintained. I still recommend it to the Windows users that
aren't computer savvy. BPBPortable should work for that purpose.

Thanks everyone!
