HTML Bible

The Latvian New Testament HTML Bible has been placed in the Public Domain, which means there is no copyright (nor can there ever be one) on this software. You are welcome to make copies and distribute this software freely, in accordance with the protection afforded to you through our Licensing Agreement.

Most Bibles viewed on the Internet are created by a Common Gateways Interface (CGI) program, and are not very portable. A web server and must be installed to get them to run.

The HTML Bible consists of 1,189 "flat" HTML Web pages. It does not require a web server, and can operate on almost any platform. All that is required is to have a Computer and a Browser, such as Netscape or Internet Explorer. The HTML Bible can function as a collection of files located in a folder on your hard drive.

The HTML Bible was created by using Visual Basic 5.0 to convert and load public domain Bible texts to an Access 97 database, where another VB program checked the data for accuracy. A third program then converted the data from Access to 1,189 chapter text files and an index file with .htm extensions, with the appropriate HTML tags inserted for presenting the data in a table format. The VB program wrote the hyperlinks between each adjoining chapter and to and from the index page. Hyperlinks between related verses concerning the same topic in the KJV 2.0 and 3.0 have been manually installed.

To increase access speed, each chapter of the Bible is presented as one HTML file. There are 1,189 chapter-files in the Internet Bible, plus an index, license, and About file. The chapter filenames are arranged as follows:

"B" "B" stands for "Book". Files must begin with an alpha character.
"2 digit Book Number" 01 to 66. 01 is for Genesis, 66 for Revelation
"C" "C" stands for Chapter
"3 digit Chapter Number" 001 to 150 for Psalms chapter 150.
".htm extension" Files must have an .htm extension to be viewed by the browser.

For Matthew 1, the filename will be B40C001.htm. For Matthew 24, the filename will be B40C024.htm

The following is a list of Books, with the book number used in the numbering scheme, and maximum number of chapters:

Inside each Chapter, there is a further reference to the specific verse, which can be integrated with any other HTML document. For example, to link directly to Matthew 5:17, the following link is used:

< A HREF="B40C005.htm#V17">Matthew 5:17</A>

The link to the verse in each chapter always begins with "V" and the verse number. A commentary converted to HTML can link to the appropriate verse in the Internet Bible, and allow the reader to view the verse in its context.
