Re: Changes in UBS GNT 4th ed

For those of you/us "minutiae-ologists" out there, it isn't *exactly* true
that UBS3 text = UBS4 text = NA26/27 text...

There are punctuation differences between the two.

There are differences of capitalization, some caused by the preceding.

NA26 was changed to match UBS3/4 for NA27 at 2Tim 3:25 by moving the iota
subscript on DWH. There were some other changes, all minor, as well.

There are some actual differences between UBS4 and NA27, all of them I've
encountered--if memory serves-- are because of differences in how a word is
split/not split, eg., 1Cor 6:3 MHTIGE or MHTI GE.

I've not encountered any different words or word orders, however.
