Not all bibles are cross-referenced, from what I'm seeing.  Some are
commented, such as World English and NetFree bible, but only the KJV
seems to have the Strongs Greek and Hebrew references (which must be
installed).

Since all this runs with Sword modules, you should be able to find help
in any forum that discusses Sword functionality - I'm definitely just a
newbie at this point.
