FYI. I have replied directly to Vince LaRue regarding this potential text development work.

As some of you know, he and I have already been collaborating together for the SpaRV1865 modern orthography Bible module.

A module update for that is being prepared and is well underway.
This is to incorporate the minor textual corrections fixed during proof reading for printed Bibles.

It's over 15MB in size, and looks torequire a substantial amount of work to make it a usable text (evenleaving aside the spelling inaccuracies that were retainedintentionally). Incidentally, the entire body of Deuterocanonical booksis also available for this work.
