I know that Zondervan has tried to deep six the NIV 1984, but I am curious about something, since it also relates to NIV11 and maybe other versions.
The NIV11 seems to have a lot of spots where there are two full returns between quotations. The only print version I have is a Greek-English diglot; it doesn't have two full returns (just one), but maybe other versions do. It, of course, just means that version takes up a bit more screen space than it otherwise might.
Mostly I'm curious--why the difference in spacing between the 1984 and 2011 versions? Is that a publisher's decision that has to do with the print version or with the etext Accordance received?
See the "Let us eat and drink...." quote at the end of v. 32 in the attached.
Maybe it's because I've been using User Notes and User Tools all afternoon, but I did, without thinking, actually find myself trying to edit the NIV11 like a User Tool to delete the extra return.
