i have questions about file formats and the quran.. please correct me if im wrong, as im pretty new.
as i understand the formats we use to digitally use/search/store/ exchange our Quran texts/translations/commentaries we mostly use flat files. - zekr.org puts them in zip and adds a properties file - tanzil.net prefixes the lines with a number (like: 59|22|<verse text>) both of these of these formats leave out aspects of the texts/ translations/commentaries we usually see printed in books. i'll try to name a few: - foot notes - references (to footnotes or other parts of the book) - headings (to group verses) - translations of chapter (sura) names (like 'the cow', could be translated as 'the heifer' as well -- isn't it?) - other sections to the book (intros, appendices, etc) - (please add more if you are aware of any) i wonder if there pre-exists a file format that handles more of these kindly, kneeler. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "zekr" group.
