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.
