Good morning,

I hope someone could assist.

I am busy marking up The Scriptures 2009 and I notice discrepancies with regards to displaying bold in BPBible and The SWORD Project for Windows.

I used the following (as per the OSIS manual) to show bold = <hi type="bold">bold</hi>, but it shows as italics.

Portions marked as italics = <transChange type="added">italics</transChange>, do show correctly as italics.

Both bold and italics show correctly in Xiphos, BibleTime and PocketSword on the iPhone. I should be able to test on Android within the next few days when I upgrade to an Android cell phone.

Is this a problem in BPBible and The SWORD Project for Windows?

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

In His Name,

Johan Marais
