Seeing these pages on a mobile phone
You should be able to see all seiyaku.com pages on a mobile phone or other handheld device. Many pages, however, are quite large and contain images that result in slow response times. To address this, we've recently begun a special version of the site, called seiyaku.mobi
The content is the same but the format and layout are changed to suit to the small screen of a handheld device.
If you have a QR barcode reader on your camera phone, scan the image on the left to give you 'quick response' access to the mobile site. If there is no barcode reader on your phone, you can access the same page at seiyaku.mobi/bible/. (If you are reading this page from a mobile phone already, just click on the iPhone photo on the right to take you to the mobile site.)

We try to be consistent.
For example, we spell "internet" with a lowercase "i". (Traditionally, like many other important words, "the Internet" was treated as proper noun. But conventions change. We no longer capitalise "email" or "french fries" and big as it is, "the sky" is not capitalised either.)
Yes, we spelt "capitalise" with "s". This site has an international readership so we bow to the majority and spelling is chiefly British English.
