Unicode/XML Westminster Leningrad Codex

Postby cvkimball » Mon Sep 30, 2013 7:40 am

This Hebrew bible (the Tanach) has been derived from the Westminster Leningrad Codex (WLC) maintained by the J. Alan Groves Center for Advanced Biblical Research by Kirk E. Lowery and Stephen K. Salisbury. The WLC has been transcribed to a format with Unicode character coding and XML markup. The license of use is very generous.

Text can be rapidly accessed by providing a citation, i.e. Deut 26:5-9, in a text field or by clicking on a succession of links. Text can be displayed in a variety of formats and font sizes. Hebrew text may be highlighted, copied, and pasted into Unicode compatible applications. Books of the Torah have an option to display source markings of the Documentary Hypothesis (DH).

The text is available in five formats for downloading (XML, text, HTML, ODT, PDF).

Notices about the site are published at this site under the "General Discussion" Forum. They include the words "Unicode/XML Westminster Leningrad Codex" in the title line.

The transcriber, "cvkimball", is eager to assist users and values suggestions. He can be contacted by this site's private message facility.
