one quick question, which has bothered me for quite some time --- is BW (BW9, I should say) fully in unicode now?

in BW8, some (actually most) of the modules (eg. JM Hebrew grammar, Wallace Greek grammar) are NOT in unicode, which then results in display problems in non-English Windows (Windows 7 actually) environment ...

Thanks,
-Andley.

There has been no change in the way Unicode is or is not used in BW9, except that new modules use Unicode and all future modules will be in Unicode. We do have plans on converting older modules into Unicode (especially Wallace and Waltke&O'Connor) but it is a slow and tedious process, especially in the case of Hebrew texts.

thanks for the update.

one more question: what about the Juron & Muraoka Hebrew grammar?
is it also part of the plan to be converted ?

Thanks,

Definitely. But it won't be very soon.
