I've put out the 5th beta. You can download it from the links at the
bottom of the page (http://www.crosswire.org/~dmsmith/kjv2006)
As always, feedback is appreciated.
This beta corrects mistakes reported against the last beta. And also
does the following:
All divine names are tagged with <divineName> (most were already).
If the underlying strong's number is 3050 (YH), 3068 or 3069 (YHWH), I
have added the type x-yhwh.

without a type.
I also wrapped 2 instances of BRANCH in all caps with divineName as it
appears that this is what the KJV was trying to communicate in making it
In all of these instances I have changed the word to begin with a
capital letter and be followed with lower case. The intention is that
these should be rendered with small-caps.
Questions: Should these be left as all caps? Can the front-ends render
I have identified all inscriptions that were in all caps in the KJV. I
have wrapped these with <inscription> and changed the all caps to Title
Case. The intention is that these should be rendered with small-caps,
perhaps emphasized with bold.
Question: Should these be left as all caps? Can the front-ends render this?
I have compared the paragraph marks against two other e-texts and then
against a print Old Scofield. The result is:
All paragraph marks starting a chapter have been deleted.
All paragraph marks that did not validate were changed to <milestone
type="x-extra-p"/>, to hide them but keep them for future analysis.
Acrostic titles in Psalm 119:
I have added the attribute xlit to each <w> element surrounding the
transliteration of the Hebrew alphabet letter (e.g. ALEPH) and set the
value to the Hebrew character. This is not intended for display, but for
Fix any reported problems.
