From Windows PC to iPhone
I have created a bible module for The SWORD Project for Windows from a GBF UTF-8 text file, using imp2vs, e.g.

$$$ Gen 1:1
In the beginning ...

My goal is to make this same module available for the iPhone and SwordReader.

The bible module has inter alia the following within the text:

Hebrew letters for the Name of the Father and the Son.
Characters with diacritical markers (e.g. h with a dot below, b with a line below, etc. - "special characters")
Colored text
Italics
Super text
Bold

The above show 100% correcty in Windows.

I have copied this module to iPhone and the Hebrew and the special characters show correctly, but the colored text, bold, italics and super text show the "markup" (RTF), i.e. {\cf2} for blue, {\i} for italics, {\super} for superscript, etc.

Similarly in SwordReader, except the Hebrew and special characters just show blocks, probably just a font issue. The same with SlideBible (it is a pity the font cannot be changed though).

I assume that the module for the iPhone requires text to be in OSIS format?

Question: How do I progress from the Windows PC module that I have to making this module for iPhone and SwordReader please?

I have downloaded all the utiities and have read the posts, but I am at a loss.

All and any help is appreciated - but please note tht I am not a programmer.

In His Name,

Johan
