English Abstract

It is sometimes necessary to read several texts simultaneously. For example, a book may have different version, different translations, or layers of comments. Through aligning the texts, a scholar can quickly observe the differences between texts and, through which, explore potential deeper meanings behind these differences. Information technology and the abundance of full texts available make simultaneous reading of books much easier than before. In this paper, we present a tool developed on the DocuSky platform for reading several texts on a single webpage. Our tool utilizes DocuXML, the standard format for DocuSky, and introduces a new tag called Align-Tag as the mechanism for alignment. One can read segments of aligned texts simultaneously through not only metadata but also Align-Tag ID. We have experimented our tool on different types of texts, including history classics (Three Commentaries of Chunqiu), original texts and their interpretations (classical Chinese and modern Chinese of Tang Poems), and different versions of the same book (The Bible).
