In the NA28T-T apparatus, there is a Signs/Abbreviations search field (which I really appreciate).
In the LXXG-ISA apparatus, there is not such a search field, but I just discovered that the "Manuscripts" field does include what I might otherwise have thought of as "sigla." For example:
†, §, ⟦, –, +, >
are among the options. I'm curious:
( a ) why they were included among the Manuscripts field (and not a separate Signs/Abbreviations field). Are other Göttingen apparatuses the same?
( b ) if I want to search the ° sign, I can do that from the Manuscripts field, or from Contents with a . preceding the ° (though see ( c ) below), but what if I want to find all instances of 1°? The logical query would seem to be 1 <AND> .° (in the Contents field?) but this returns results (whether set to Article or Paragraph) where 1 and ° appear in the same paragraph, but not necessarily together as 1° per se, which is what I'm looking for.
( c ) searching .° in Contents field and searching ° in Manuscripts field yield different results--does anyone know why this would be?
