I see that the Zefania on SourceForge has the F35 with the Greek alphabet in XML markup.  Mark, if that were brought into the e-Sword and available of iOS, Windows and Mac I would have what I need.  The accents and diacritical markings are nice but are not that important.  Is that something you are able to do straightforwardly, Mark?

 

Again, thanks so much for your attention. e-Sword is really great as it is so platform independent.

There is a free program called Simple Bible Reader that can read Zefania XML modules and then convert them to e-Sword's bblx format from there you can use the e-Sword Apple/Mac converter to create the bbli version. 

Here is the link to Simple Bible Reader:

Yes. I checked it out on the PC. It seems to work fine. Thanks so much. Now how can this be made available for the iOS and the Mac? I checked the Mac converter but it only works with bblx format. Are you able to produce those formats so this will work on the iOS and Mac platforms? That would be great.

I would like to see a Bible module with apocrypha that includes Book(s) of Enoch and Book of Jasher or just an apocrypha bible with these books.

In bblx format not topx format. If there is already one available I cannot locate it.

 

Thanx,

David

The html format that is used for e-Sword Bibles since version 11 has confusingly two possible endings .bblx or .bbli. Official modules that were updated to html still use the .bblx ending even though they are html content. This has and still does lead to confusion. 

The module might need some font information added will check that today and fix if needed. The sign something is wrong with the font is that it will not follow the setting you have for Greek. Instead it will be in the default font.

 

Here is the module v 1.1 that should follow font settings, for Greek font

Unfortunately such a bible module cannot happen as e-Swords programming only allows for the following Apocrypha books:

1 Esdras

2 Esdras

1-4 Macabbees

Tobit

Judith

Prayer of Man

Wisdom

Sirach

Baruch

Additions to Esther

Daniel 13 & 14

 

This why other Apocrypha books can only be found as Topic or topx modules

As I posted yesterday the program Simple Bible Reader can read and convert Zefania XML files into e-Sword bblx modules from there you can convert the bblx module to bbli using the e-Sword Apple/Mac Converter.

Reading about  all the conversions that Mac users want for resources to work on e-Sword X, and wanting us Windows users to do their work astounds me of their laziness to do anything themselves. And with that, I do not believe that among all the Mac users which use e-Sword X, that there is no one who can't do programming.

 

What is it with you lot that don't get off your butts and develop a tool (write a program) that is made specifically for your needs, and upload it here for all the other Mac users to use.??? Seriously, why don't you do something about it???

History of the Apostolic Church by Phillip Schaff - available on Google books, it not as a module

I was studying his History of the Christian Church; this was referenced as preceding and not to be rehashed, so I began to look for it. It is foundational to the other, makes his assumptions and underlying beliefs clear, has his own overview and assessment concerning the vast variety of material & authors, clearly sets forth the approach he chooses and many other things from the standpoint of an unfolding continuous revelation and growth of doctrine based on varying views. A rather overwhelming reference yet immensely valuable to the lay student I think.
Thank you for your consideration.
