There are some hidden surprises (the developers call them "features") in
some of the high end bible research systems. I remember a big flap several
years ago when someone was compiling statistics for a research project using
the Mac program and found out that it counted punctuaction as "words" when
doing statistics. I am not sure if this problem was ever cleared up in later
releases or not.
