That is no longer true. The crown copyright on the KJV will expire in, I think, 2040. The "perpetual" aspect of it was abolished a few years ago.

Does this mean that UK users can or can't download this bible?

I used your HTML file as a stress test for automatic TOC via OpenOffice Writer.

It's a bit rough, but it's the first free Bible I've seen for the Kindle that has a working TOC button.

Speaking of what to do with an electronic bible, do we really need cross references? After all you can search from any part to any other part by select and paste or just typing in the search term.

That depends what device you're using. Many don't have a "search" facility.

Sherman! I really want to thank you for this great work you did!
I have just got my first ereader a Sony PRS-600 and I love it. I have a lot of Word doc files, and rtf files, that I would love to find out how to make the links within the documents work in the Sony reader. I tried making bookmarks then links to the bookmarks within the document but when I loaded in on my Sony they no longer work.

Can you direct me to how to do this or if they are converted to epub is there an easier way to do it.

Thanks for any guidance you can give me!

Michael

Hmm, I don't usuallly work with Word or RTF documents. However when I do, I almost always save them as "Web Page (Filtered)" and import the HTML file into Calibre.

I'm not sure about the links-if they work in the outputted HTNL, they should work in the calibre converted ePub file.
If they don't work you may need to edit the HTML file yourself and add the links manually.

Hope this helps any.

On windows, use 7-Zip to extract the file.

The ePub is the file that is ready to go straight on the reader.

The bz2 file contains the HTML file that I used to create the ePub file.

Thank You

Thank you Sherman, you are very helpful, looking forward to my Sony Reader to arrive this week so I can try it!
Would you or any one you can recommend be interested in creating an epub document for me? I do a post on iJesus Glorylist (maybe 20 year) about 1 page long. I save these on Word and would like to at the end of the year combine them into one ebooklet with a TOC that can go to each individual writing.
If so what is a reasonable price to pay for a job of this sort.
Sorry to bug you but if you could I have one more question. Is their an advantage to to epub vs. Sony's Bbe lrf format in terms of the Sony Readers ability to navigate TOC or other functionalities?
I have a feeling alot of these questions are going to be moot next year as at some point manufactures are going to put better reader software on their machines.

Thanks again
Rolech

Thank you Sherman! I'm new again to the ebook world, and currently and planning (read "scheming") to get a B&N Nook. Curiously, in the B&N desktop reader, the software seems to have a need to "count the chapters" each time I open the book, and again each I open or close the TOC, or the bookmarks, or annotations.No one else has mentioned that little quirk, so I presume its either commonly accepted or (more likely) an uncommon symptom.

I've seen no other Nook users in this thread. Heathens.

You're Welcome.

Although I have no idea how it works on the Nook...

It works great and I love being able to the book and then select the chapter. The whole Bible is there. I also enjoy the fact that I can make the font larger or smaller so it is easier to read. Thanks again for a job well done.
