Great day all.  I'm using e-Sword 10.4.0, and I create e-Sword modules using e-Sword ToolTip Tool NT v1.29

My problems are as follows.

 

#1) Hebrew words and sentences show up properly in e-Sword *unless* they have any English punctuation, such as commas, periods, or quotation marks.  In those cases, the Hebrew text gets mangled.  Why, and how to fix?

 

#2) Estrangelo font copies fine into ToolTip Tool NT from other programs, but when rendered into e-Sword, it appears completely backwards.

 

#3) Is there anyway to insert images into a Commentary or Dictionary file?  I've never found a way to do so up until this point, over the years.  If so, how please?

 

Thank you so much for the help.

Either use Hebrew punctuation, or before and after each English punctuation mark, put the appropriate right-to-left or left-to-right indicator.

<dir="ltr" lang="en">.<html dir="rtl" lang="he">אבג<dir="ltr" lang="en">

If I remember my html presentation markup correctly.

 

Unicode Ux200F & Ux200E are the glyphs to use for UTF-8.

What happens when you use the SIL Hebrew fonts?

In theory, yes. In practice, probably not. 

 

There is some documentation from early versions of e-Sword floating around, that describes how to include both images, and audio files in e-Sword modules. It required performing black magic on the RTF within the e-Sword module.

 

That said, what happens when you include

<img src="example.png" alt="Example" width="128" height="128">

in your markup?
