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:Title Book # # of Chapters Matthew 40 28 Mark 41 16 Luke 42 24 John 43 21 Acts 44 28 Romans 45 16 1 Corinthians 46 16 2 Corinthians 47 13 Galatians 48 6 Ephesians 49 6 Phillipians 50 4 Colossians 51 4 1 Thess. 52 5 2 Thess. 53 3 1 Timothy 54 6 2 Timothy 55 4 Titus 56 3 Philemon 57 1 Hebrews 58 13 James 59 5 1 Peter 60 5 2 Peter 61 3 1 John 62 5 2 John 63 1 3 John 64 1 Jude 65 1 Revelation 66 22
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.
