Gang, just for the record, Fundamentalists think that Wycliffe is a godless 
liberal organization.  They really aren't Fundamentalist in any historical 
understanding of the word.  As suggested in this e-mail, that's an off-list 
conversation.  I just wanted to bring a point of clarification.

SIL is extremely important for scholarly work with both Biblical and other 
Ancient Near Eastern texts (Akkadian, Uggaritic, etc...) - without their 
fonts people in these fields would be stuck many years outside the PC 
revolution (I've got a grammar that's pre-SIL - YICK).
