Subject [greenstone-users] Subject: PagedImagePlugin: mapping a scanned image file with two text files using XML based ITEM file
Hi,

I'm building a digital library collection on scanned pages of Ethiopian
ancient parchment manuscripts. The manuscripts are in Ethiopian ancient
language called Geez and are being translated in to local languages:
Tigrigna and Amharic. I'm building the digital library as PagedImage
collections with the translated texts. So that one can see the scanned pages
with corresponding translated texts and can perform search in the texts. I
am using the PagedImagePlugin to precess the files. I have image collections
in one folder , translated texts in another and the ITEM file in XML as
flows:

C:imagesPage1
C:imagesPage2
.
.
.
C: extAmharicPage1.txt
C: extAmharicPage2.txt
.
.
.
C: extTigrignaPage1.txt
C: extTigrignaPage2.txt
.
.
.
C:itemfile.ITEM

I want to map an image (a scanned page) say Page1 with with two text files
of the translated page, say textTigrignaPage1.txt and textAmharicPage1.txt
So that the user can see the scanned page and its content in two languages.
So my question is how can I map the image file with tow text files in the
xml based ITEM file? By the way I'm following the examples available online
(Advanced scanned image collection). So how can I do that? Any help please?

Thanks,
