[b-hebrew] Analytical Lexicons.

I dont use the Online Bible BDB because it is connected with the Strongs numbers, which, because they are connected with vowel points with which I too often disagree, I then find untrustworthy.
While I was learning Hebrew, I used the Davidsons analytical until it fell apart and the pages were flying to the four winds. At first I found it indespensible, but near the end I automatically looked up the root, almost never finding that I didnt recognize the form nor root.
What I want is to be able to click on a term in an unpointed text, then have the different possible roots and meanings come up.
