    Yeah it totally escaped my notice until after I had posted my second reply to you that Mark referred you to the CNTTS, which only confused matters more. [It's okay Mark, it's a busy week ] But yeah I normally refer to this module as Comfort and Barrett, not CTENTM, but together with CNTTS, it is a confusing mix of acronyms, but as you say a great source of textual help!

The other interesting thing to note is that if you have this verse open in the MSS tab, you will see that the transcriber did leave a note about this reading in the Transcription Notes section (below the image if you have Sinaiticus active in the MSS tab):
    Thanks for this too. That's what I was seeing, and now that I understand where the transcriber is located in the text-critical cosmos, so to speak, I understand better what's going on here. I love doing text criticism, but as I say I'm only just beginning to explore the tools BW offers for it. Dang, I wish I was going to live to be 120.

    So here's a semi-theological speculation: Do you suppose that in the next world, where all secrets are revealed, God will let some of us continue to puzzle over text critical issues just because we love to do it -- and then let us take our proposed solutions to the biblical authors to check them? That would be heaven!

    Yes, well, and it escaped my notice that it was Mark and not you who made that reference! Hey, your names both start with an M, what am I supposed to do, pay attention?
