Hmmm, was doing some stuff in Hebrews, in MacSword (looking good atm, 
but how do the various texts and commentaries link?  wanted to look at 
some texts side-by-side, with a commentary, but I had to individually 
take each window to the required verse?), and then double checked in 
diatheke, and it seems that chapter one of hebrews also has the verses 
messed up -- verse one is actually v2, v2 is actually v3, etc, and v14 
is blank...  was someone going to look into this, or what can I do 
about it?

nic...  :)

ps: yes, sorry, replying to my own email...  :(
