Presenting two or more versions of the same text close together is a challenge. Here’s how I arrived at one solution, and implemented it.
The Books app demonstrates how stultified is the approach to text on computers. It’s carefully engineered to work like a book, not to bring any new powers to text or reading.
The idea was to create a single document which would get the best out of both apps. Here is my solution, and the file to download.
Getting parallel text working using Tinderbox 7’s new Composite notes, to open access to Ovid’s story of myths.
Adding images to the parallel hypertext, tidying its Map view up, and more. Includes a tip for better debugging and reader testing.
Putting the entire content of Book 1 into a Storyspace/Tinderbox document, to view the Latin and English in parallel.
One way to produce a hypertext document with parallel views of the text in two languages. This gives the reader the option to see one or both.
