	I don't know about "gazillions" of accents, but the trup (or cantillation)
marks are clearly evident in the MacBible product from Zondervan.  Macs can
generally be had pretty cheap right now, so pick one up to run your program
on.  It's not that expensive as I recall either.

	Alternatively, you could get the Soncino Classics Collection from Davka
for $589.  It includes the complete Tanach, Talmud, Midrash Rabbah, and
Zohar, in both Hebrew/Aramaic and English.  For more information see:

If you want just the Bible you can get it for $49.  See:
