[sword-devel] About PreferredCSSXHTML

Does anything need to be added to our wiki page?


It’s the last row in the table in this section.

Troy, How does Bishop handle CSS ?

Anyone, How do other JSword based front-ends handle CSS ?
eg. Does STEP Bible use it in any way ?

The xulsword app (aka Holy Bible aka Mukkades Kitap) also has a number of app-specific config keys.
eg LanguageSortOrder

Ideas like this often have a potentially wider application than one particular front-end.
It might in some cases make sense to bring the proper feature they are required for into both the back-end APIs.

Best regards

I noticed that there's PreferredCSSXHTML config key for this purpose. However, CSS for And Bible need to be formatted in a specific way and plain CSS would mess up things -- I need per-module namespacing because the same WebView instance can show multiple module content simultaneously in some contexts (compare view, multi doc view, my notes, study pads etc). In addition, I also support specifying separate settings for dark night mode. Thus, I ended up, for now, using a custom AndBibleCSS key instead.
