The first version (2006) of Watchtower Reader.
Nearly everything, with a dll override and a custom made third party (GPL) font. Syncronization between Readers and Reader <-> Library, also older versions.
What does not
Without dll override: tooltips, and the special marginal/footnote characters.
Seems there are some more special chars in this one compared to wtlib. Like next and last day for daily text. Minor issue.
What was not tested
nothing I know of.
needs a comctl32.dll (XP/2000) override to work completely (cosmetic)
