Well, I got myself into a sort of a new project that is suppose to keep me from getting into mischief. But hey, if I stopped from being mischievous, that would ruin all the fun, so with all the mischief one can muster, I decided to edit the Strong's numbers in the KJV+TVM Bible for e-Sword.

 

Below is a screenshot of where I am currently at with this mischievous project (trouble is being brewed).

 

Attached File  Editing Strong's Numbers.png   56.61K   34 downloads

 

So now you can see what I am up too.

 

Just some Technical stuff:

The previous default code for the Strong's numbered Bibles was \cf11\super. The new default rtf code for the Strong's Numbered Bibles is, \fs20\cf12\super.

  • fs means font size
  • 20 means 20 half points, which actually means 10 points of the actual size of the font
  • cf means font color, and the and the number given, e.g., 11 or 12 etc., refers to the actual color of the font.
  • super means Superscript.

Trust you find this geeky information both useful and helpful.

 

Blessings,

Why not use the PC to Apple conversion utility?

I could, but all the Conversion Utility does is merely converts rtf code to HTML. It doesn't change the font size and/or the font color. In other words, the format remains the same. It doesn't change.

 

Another thing is, I suck at HTML, and I'm relatively safe with rtf. After I'm done and dusted (finished) with this project, I might convert it to a bbli file. But then I might not. Depends on the mood I'm in. Emotions have a great deal to so with it.

 
Uh-uh.gif A real worry.

I did the same to the Alford Bible I made. I just did a search and replace in the Sql and was done and dusted in 6 seconds... I did eventually use the converter to make it more compliant in e-S.

It changes rtf {\cf11\super ....} to html <num>....</num> and e-Sword gives that the font color and font size you want. So it does change ;)

Currently testing it. Let you know the results when complete

Tested it, and you're correct on that. And of which I appreciate your input.

 

That said, there are those who are using older versions of e-Sword which only reads bblx files (e-Sword versions 9x and 10x), and cannot read HTML formatted files. So as to whether or not go ahead with the project is another story. If I decide to go ahead, I think I'll do it in T4 rather than take the long route using SQLite Database Browser.
