Re: Support 4 Graphics (Images)?
Can Sword and Bibletime and Gnomesword work with images/graphics?


This came up on the sword-devel list a couple weeks ago. OSIS and ThML modules can both include images; in ThML (which I still generate for my modules, bad boy that I am), the syntax is "<img src="/images/xyz.jpg"/> and GnomeSword, for one, displays such images just fine. The file location is anchored to the directory where the rest of the module's files live, i.e., "images" must be a subdir there. I've built myself a "maps" module, as a "dictionary," and I open that module in a separate window. Works great. But not all the frontends do images yet -- WinSword just displays the literal text content, and I believe BibleTime displays some placeholder image in place of the intended image.

So the underlying library is happy with images. The rest of the frontends need to catch up.
