No

Xiphos does not display words of Christ correctly in some modules.
Check Matthew 3 in the HNV - only part of verse 15 should be redletter, but it continues right to the end (including the title for Matthew 4, and Matthew 4:1).
Move to chapter 4 and Matthew 4:1 now isn't red, but almost the entire chapter is, when it shouldn't be.
Move to chapter 5 and most of the chapter isn't red, even though it should be!
I don't really know if the issue is really with xiphos rather than sword, but the HNV module does display correctly in bibletime and swordweb, although the ABU doesn't display redletter correctly in either xiphos or bibletime...

    Oh, sorry.
    No, the HNV doesn't display correctly in bibletime and swordweb either. It is correct a lot more often than xiphos, but not always.
    So I guess maybe it is really the modules at fault. But it seems strange that they display even worse in xiphos than in other frontends.

  • i don't know about swordweb, but bibletime has modified filters that don't behave quite the same as other sword project apps.

    as you surmise, it's not a xiphos problem. xiphos displays what the filters provide as verses are requested. there is a very small set of controls that xiphos has over such things, but for red words, all xiphos does is set the flag for the engine to request it, and then expects the right thing to come back as verses are obtained.

    see http://www.crosswire.org/tracker/secure/Dashboard.jspa for reporting module bugs.

    OK, thanks.
    Looking into it, I think the HNV has actually been replaced by WEBME anyway, and the ABU is "experimental".
    I actually noticed it first when trying to build a new module for WEB, which is quite out of date...

    On the off-chance that anyone comes across this in the same situation, the trick with building a WEB module is to start with the usfm they provide, as it seems the osis they provide is rather perverse. This gets things looking pretty good apart from some verses starting a line below their verse number.
