Another usefull tool for B-W users.

I have the Oxford English Dictionary installed on my PC (at home). It has a feature like that described by barry. It works with any open application. (BibleWorks, MS Word, etc.) Double-clicking on a selected word opens the OED window to that entry. (The OED program must already be running for this feature to work.) OED has an online presence, but it is a subscription service. The Internet site where that service can be found is www.oed.com (http://www.oed.com/). The automatic lookup feature described with the installed version does not work with the OED Online.
