Unicode/XML Westminster Leningrad Codex - Upgrade to build 25.1

Postby cvkimball » Thu Sep 01, 2016 9:56 am

The Unicode/XML Westminster Code at

<http://www.tanach.us/Tanach.xml>

has been upgraded to build 25.1 with corrections to its Unicode/XML text.

Max Benson has pointed out 3 errors in the translation from the Michigan-Claremont coded text of the Groves Center's Westminster Leningrad Codex to the Unicode/XML text of the site. These errors have been corrected.

The corrected text for the first two errors, Genesis 5:29 (word 6); Zephaniah 2:15 (word 1); has two cantillation marks (gerashayim, telisha-gedola) on a single syllable word. The corrected text for the third error, 2 Kings 21:26 (word 1); has two vowels (sheva, holam) on a single consonant. Though anomalous in grammar, the corrected text matches the appearance of the Leningrad Codex.

The underlying WLC text (4.20) and site operation is unchanged.
