To convert from Nave module to text, you can use mod2imp.exe.  However, to put it back into SWORD module, the imp2ld.exe does not work properly.  I have no problem to get text from module, but I could not use imp2ld.exe to put it back into module.

Subject: [sword-devel] Nave's

Naves has/is one of my favorite Bible dictionaries.

I am thinking about improving Nave's for use with Sword and JSword. 
Specifically, I would like to mark up the verse references and internal 
cross references so that they are hyperlinks. I hope to get started 
after JSword 1.0 is released (soon, but in its own time), but I want to 
start thinking about it now.

In the nave.conf, I found references to www.bf.org as being the 
TextSource. (They are listed for a bunch of other modules) It appears 
that they no longer maintain the source. Doing some searching I found 
Naves.zip at http://aibi.gospelcom.net/downloads/naves.zip. This looks 
very much like what was used for the Sword module.

First question, Do we maintain copies of the "editorial masters" from 
which Sword modules are created? And if so, could you point me to it for 

Second question, Is this link pointing to what was used? I did a spot 
check and it does not agree with my printed copy, 1974 Revised Edition 
(e.g. see "House of God") Where can I find a non-revised hard copy 
edition, if that was the basis? It does seem to agree with what is in 
the module. Is there a better zip? If so where? My goal at this point is 
better markup, not better content.

Third (I know this is actually question 5 and 6;) question, If we don't 
have the editorial master, is there a way to reverse the module making 
to produce a facsimile of it? Or should I start over with this Naves.zip?

Fourth question: What format should be used? OSIS, THML, GBF, ...? It 
seems that OSIS is the current markup of choice. I plan to use perl to 
do the transformation.

Currently it looks something like this in JSword:
-A place of prayer #Mt 21:13; Mr 11:17; Lu 19:46| -Holy #Ec 5:1; Isa 
62:9; Eze 43:12; 1Co 3:17| -See SYNAGOGUE -See TABERNACLE -See TEMPLE

In the zip it looks something like:
 -A place of prayer
    #Mt 21:13; Mr 11:17; Lu 19:46|

    #Ec 5:1; Isa 62:9; Eze 43:12; 1Co 3:17|




Fifth question: Any other input?
