How to add HTML tags to StarDict file?

Postby qwiqooq » Sun Feb 17, 2013 10:24 pm

I'm building dictionary and the definition field contains HTML. I have tried the Babylon format by using Babylon Glossary Builder but
- When the source is Excel file, the maximum length for a cell is 32,767 characters so many words can't have their complete definition.
- When the source is GLS file, the Builder program simply crashes. Could it be due to the source is too large?

Then I moved to StarDict format by using Stardict Editor. Here are some lines in my TAB file
Code: Select all
a   <span style="font-color:#008000">prep.</span> <i>(en relaciones de proporción, equivalencia)</i> per.
abajo   <span style="font-color:green">adv.</span> below.
a mano   by hand.
abarcar   <span style="font-color:green">v.</span> <i>(temas/materias)</i> to cover; <i>(superficie/territorio)</i> to span, cover.


However when I add the dictionary to GoldenDict, the HTML tags are just displayed like normal text :(

So can anyone show me how to add HTML tags to StarDict file please?

Stardict editor assumes the input and therefore output is plain text.
Just open your .ifo file and change sametypesequence=m to sametypesequence=h
Then reindex the dictionary in GoldenDict.

For more info about "sametypesequence" check http://code.google.com/p/babiloo/wiki/StarDict_format
