More than you wanted to know about Zefania Bibles

Zefania Bibles are usually created by hand or by converting from another format. Zefania files use XML and Unicode (and particularly UTF-8) international standards. They consist of only one file containing the entire available Bible books. They only contain the Bible text and possibly a few extras like book titles and introductions, but a lot of other necessary information (metadata) is not currently defined or included in the specification.

Zefania XML Bibles can be imported into the free OpenLP worship presentation software.

Zefania XML Bible files are quite similar to Haggai format.

Sample Zefania files

You can view the Matigsalug demo Zefania files here and the demo WEB Zefania files here.

Submitting Zefania files to the Bible Drop Box

You should compress your Zefania XML file into a zip archive. The filename must have a .zip extension. Take careful note of which folder you are saving your zip file into, because you will need that information in order to submit the file.

Test data: If you are able to provide any kinds of Bible files for automated testing purposes, please contact us and let us know the details so we can improve the internationalisation and ruggedness of the software for everyone’s benefit.
