Bible Study Software - Open Standard Book Formats:
  1. proprietary format - Logos Library System (LLS) format. ONLY forward compatible, NOT backwards compatible! The LLS format was promoted as a "generic platform for electronic books..." Libronix DLS and now, Logos Libronix DLS (Digital Library System) Series X Bible Software engine. Windows Browser version dependant. And yes, their latest version works on Vista! Whatever Microsoft forecasts, they will follow. Logos Programmers formerly worked for Microsoft.

    1. Mirror Site.
  3. CROSS Standard Format - (Christian Reference Open Software Standard) is based on XML and is the format behind the WORDsearch, Bible Explorer® and Bible Navigator® software engines. New CROSS format based on XHTML and Unicode.
    1. WORDsearch Bible Software FAQ: "STEP was based on an old technology called rich text format (RTF). The benefits of CROSS include improved presentation and searching of Greek and Hebrew and other languages. "
  4. OSIS - (Open Scriptural Information Standard) -A standard way of describing scripture and related text using Extensible Markup Language, or XML.Â

"Co-sponsored by the American Bible Society and the Society of Biblical Literature, the OSIS initiative plays a key role in meeting this goal by providing a common format to facilitate production, distribution, etc. of the Bible and related materials."

As Logos Libronix DLS so aptly states, as newer Technologies emerge, we're faced with "obsolescence". And so it goes... Ready, Set, Upgrade!
