OSIS support underline tag, which is important punctuation for Chinese language. See whether it can be supported.

Comment by Nic Carter [ 25/Oct/11 ]

Hi again, could you please let me know of a module & verse position where this occurs so I can take a look into this?

Comment by DM Smith [ 25/Oct/11 ]

The <hi type="xxx"> yyy yyy</hi> construct allows for xxx to indicate underline. The osishtmlhref.cpp filter does not handle that value (nor most of them). This report probably should be moved to API.

Here is an example:

<hi type="underline">AB</hi>c<hi type="underline">DEFG</hi>

I know Bible desktop for PC supports underline tag. See whether pocketsword will also support it in the future. Thanks.

Are there any other front-ends that support this? If it's only Bible Desktop, that is using JSword (Java) rather than our C++ API, which would infer that it is indeed an API issue, with osishtmlhref.cpp not supporting that.

See whether osishtmlhref.cpp will support it in the future. Thanks for your answer.

you'll need to give me a verse number so that I can find where this is happening in your module.

you will see the underline tag in Matthew 1:1. you can see this script in my file.

<hi type="underline">亞伯拉罕</hi>的後裔,
