Leningrad Codex as an eBook

Postby cvkimball » Fri May 15, 2020 8:40 am

I am the publisher of the Unicode/XML Leningrad Codex at <https://www.tanach.us>. The site provides the biblical text free and without restriction in multiple formats.

I'm considering providing the full text in eBook format, eventually targeting the Kindle and Nook readers. As with all other site files, the eBook would be free of charge. It would probably be available free from Amazon, too.

I'd like to pose some questions to members of the forum who are knowledgeable about eBooks:

1. Is a high quality Tanach eBook already available?

2. Can an eBook have a built-in Hebrew font, i.e. SBL Hebrew?

3. Can an eBook have controls for layout, content and font size similar to those of the tanach.us site?

4. Can an eBook provide rapid access to a particular verse in a manner similar to the tanach.us book selection table -> chapter selection table -> verse selection table -> last verse selection table sequence?

Any other comments would be appreciated.
