I suppose I would, but it is a bit frustrating that if you buy a
printed edition of the Bible, they give you PC software, but you have
to pay for the Mac version...

As for using Paperback, I think it would be a bit complicated. The
NetBible is loaded with extra notes, which are its primary claim to
fame. Without those notes, it's just another Bible translation. So, how
do you add these notes in Paperback? Or how about even a Newton book?
It's quite complicated, I would think.

Actually, I wish we could convince Dave Fedor to come out of
"retirement" and add the NetBible to theMessage.... But that's just a
pipe dream.
