I am using the Mss analysis window and am examining John 1:18. There are some abbreviations there which I do not understand. Could someone tell me what they mean? They are:
I looked in my Nestle Aland, and I could find no corresponding abbreviations. I thought that 1141 was a minuscule, but when I went to NA, they did not have it listed.
So, what do these bad boys mean?
Locate your mouse anywhere over those abbreviations and right click.
Thanks for the help.

Jeff, you also mentioned the abbreviation "tg," which I don't see in the popup for John 1:18, and could not find in the BW 9 help. I would hazard a guess that it might be the edition of the Greek NT by Samuel Tregelles, one of the great, though now largely forgotten, 19th-century critical editions. BW 9 includes it; in John 1:18 it agrees with B, W-H, and the Nestle/UBS editions against the Byzantine/Majority readings. For more information on this, see (thanks to the BW 9 Help!) http://www.tyndalehouse.com/tregelles/index.html, which notes that Tregelles was a major influence on Westctott and Hort.
