The Unicode/XML Tanach from the Westminister Leningrad Codex (WLC) at


as been substantially upgraded. Please advise of any problems encountered 
or suggestions.

1. Tanach text can be displayed without associated links by clicking on the 
book name directly above or below the text.  This allows printing of the 
text and was requested by a student, Luana.

2. The books of the Torah, Genesis.DH.xml ... Deuteronomy.DH.xml, contain 
Documentary Hypothesis (DH) source markings by default.  See the DH link on 
the index page for more details. The default display does not show these 
markings, however. Unmarked Torah files, Genesis.xml ... Deuteronomy.xml,
continue to be available.

3. The former "About" link has been split into "About", "Installation", and 
"Technical" links and a general cleanup of the site has been made.

4. A new "Instructions" link has been provided to describe site capabilities.

5. The site now includes an updated and standard version (0.9.3) of the 
Sarissa XML library. Previous versions contained an earlier 
and  specially-modified version of Sarissa.
