I have just received a RTF document that ostensibly contains the 
transcribed text of the true 1569 Bible of Casiodoro de Reina. It's over 
15MB in size, and looks to require a substantial amount of work to make 
it a usable text (even leaving aside the spelling inaccuracies that were 
retained intentionally). Incidentally, the entire body of 
Deuterocanonical books is also available for this work.

It currently requires a special font to view all of the uncommon 
characters. I'll make sure to have that available.
