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
- zekr.org puts them in zip and adds a properties file
- tanzil.net prefixes the lines with a number (like: 59|22|<verse
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
