Wow, thanks for all the traffic!
I'm still really looking for user interface ideas (thanks for the ones
that have been expressed). The calls to get the data from sword will be
dependent on the dynamic server-side mechanism used; coming up with an
easy access mechanism to the sword engine from an httpd plugin is a
separate issue. (Joe, jsword is an option to solve this problem if jsp
is the httpd plugin, but I'm not quite sure jsword is there yet, and if
I'm wrong, I'm pretty sure the sword-like api interface isn't close,
I definitely understand the point about not using stuff that will make
the tool inaccessible to some. There are many sites that I can't go to
just because I run NS on Linux!
BUT, I want cool functionality for those who have it, so we will
probably have an option that can be toggled. For example, I want hover
popup help for strongs numbers. Not sure how else to do that without
Agreed, no frames.
OK, any user interface design ideas? I'd love to see a mockup that
anyone feels inspired to throw together.
