I have been working with the Ugaritic Tagged Text and have a question concerning user notes and cross referencing. If I create a user note in the Ugaritic Tagged Text, I am able to do so without a problem. For example, my user note might say, “Beginning of Keret Epic,” and when the note is created, it self-creates the reference of UDB1_14 I:1 above it, just like biblical references created with user notes. However, if I go to another part of the text and create a user note which says, “compare with Keret Epic UDB1_14 I:1” and I create the words “UDB1_14 I:1” as a hyperlink scripture/text reference, it does not work. I then created a bogus reference as a text, inserting John 1:1 as a cross reference in the Ugaritic Text, and the hyperlink works and takes me to John 1:1. However, if I go to John 1:1 and create a hyperlink for the Ugaritic text, it does not create a working hyperlink. I am not sure if this is a user error or if it is not a function in the text. If this is a user error, could someone help me figure out what I am doing wrong? If this is not a function, could it be added? The Ugaritic Text in transliterated text is not particularly easy to get around by just glancing at it, and being able to make references would be very helpful. On a side note, I have noticed that a few people on the forums have asked for the actual cuneiform text, and this is apparently not something that will become available. I therefore just wanted to provide my 2 cents as another person who would be highly interested in the cuneiform text. As someone who can read Hebrew without a problem, but cannot easily read transliterated Hebrew, I am running into similar difficulties with Ugaritic. (Though I am very grateful to have the tagged transliterated text!) Thank you for considering this, and for any clarity which can be provided concerning the above cross referencing issue.
