Post VarNT (Variant Readings of the New Testament)
This official module of TheWord propably makes some problems. I found that the reference of "D" (Bezae) manuscript indicates bad information on tooltip and linking to bad position, i.e. other "D" (Claromontanus). Is it?
Official web page (laparola) indicate D-Bezae, for example in Matthew 1:20
http://www.laparola.net/greco/index.php,
Pay attention to see manuscripts:
- "Options: View the variant readings: yes",
- and see the list of manuscripts (link to section "All the manuscripts")

This is due to ambiguity in the source material. Notice that both Bezae Cantabrigiensis and Claromontanus are identified as D in the manuscript list.

It appears the first D is primarily the gospels and acts: Bezae cantabrigiensis
And the second D more to the epistles: Claromontanus

However this may be hard to extract out in the automation process of creating the module. Since it is mainly identified as D

Hopefully someday the names of these manuscripts will be adjusted but if it happens then this will affect older books.

Thank you for the answers. I know it is difficult to create automatic module when manuscript "D" actually are 3 different ones (perhaps this problem is also true for other mss). I've found another way to see correct versions. On the http://www.laparola.net/greco/index.php is a link to download an offline version of the file, as a CHM file.

Jonathan is right, we'd have to match the scope of each manuscript to get the correct one for a particular verse. This may be doable. I'll look into that.
