Reading before attacking is highly recommended. RobertDDL was explicitly referring to books he doesn't have the original scan of.

I know what was being said. But there is a scan and I have never seen a scan where I was unable to tell the difference between a comma and a speck.

This is getting tiresome, for me, and probably for everybody else still following this thread. I was clearly talking about cases where I do not have that scan, but if you read my previous post to the end, you will find that I had not given possible "speck vs. comma" issues as my reason for not publishing "unmodified" versions. Btw, if you do want to see a scan where everybody so far has found it hard to tell the difference between commas and specks, try Blake's Marriage of Heaven and Hell, just for the experience.

I have an electronic copy of Tyndale's New Testament published in about 1525 or there about. It is middle English spelling and before the u and v got swapped. Whoever made it seems to have tried to fix the u's and v's but gave up after a while. I enjoy reading it in it original form but I must be sadistic it my struggles sometimes. For me, it is what I like but I can see that someone trying to read the Tyndale translation for its accuracy and quality it would be trough read. A serious student trying to understand what they are reading would be better off with a modern spelling and modern punctuation unless they are an archeologist. But they shouldn't change the sentences or word orders. So I do draw a line somewhere.
