Markup ambiguity in module FinPR92

    Details

      Description

      The Finnish Bible module FinPR92 (Evangelical Lutheran) was squeezed to fit KJV v11n when it was made in 2003. The original verse references are included in the text for 1986 places. First example below.

      Diatheke outputs this as:
      Genesis 31:55: <H32:1> Heti seuraavana aamuna Laban suuteli lapsia ja tyttäriään ja siunasi ja hyvästeli heidät. Sitten hän lähti pois ja palasi kotiseudulleen.

      MOD2IMP outputs this as:
      $$$Genesis 31:55
      <WTH32:1>Heti seuraavana aamuna Laban suuteli lapsia ja tyttäriään ja siunasi ja hyvästeli heidät. Sitten hän lähti pois ja palasi kotiseudulleen.

      It seems that the 'ad hoc' markup is being misinterpreted by the latter as a Strong's reference. Indeed looking at this verse in Xiphos confirms that this is so.

      This module does not use Strong's references.

      It would appear that the choice of "H" as the letter to denote the original reference from the Lutheran versification has led to this unfortunate ambiguity.

        I've just updated the FinBiblia module as follows:

        Version=1.2
        History_1.2=Changed encoding to UTF-8. Rebuilt module with braces {} instead of lt/gt for av11n refs (2013-01-21)

        The rebuild has been sent to modules at crosswire dot org.

        The updates to these 3 Finnish modules should also solve the errors generated while making the Lucene search indices, as recently reported by Martin Denham when he tried to make the search index for module FinPR92 for download by And Bible.

        Submissions of modules exported via mod2imp are fine, but they will never actually be imported and released. We haven't changed to a policy where we re-import exported texts. The only case wherein a text would be imported from an exported source would be if the original imported doc were somehow lost. That would be rare, and is in any case not so with the Finnish Bibles.

        By all means, do continue submitting modified .imp files. They are at least a good checksum for the correction of the original documents. But it does take more time than a simple submission of a ready-to-import module since I've got other tasks ahead of it in my queue.
