Likewise, are these Comfort's transcriptions? If not whose?

Similarly, how does the book signify uncertain letters; conjectural
emendations; disagreements among editors; etc?

(I haven't seen Comfort's book --although I look forward to it-- but this
is often a problem with books of "transcription". They often present
the included readings as finished and exact with no indication of
underlying problems.)
