I agree and have removed the sentence. It's the "chapterization" and 
numbering that are later and they're not dealt with on the page.  Thanks!

At the end of Nehemiah 6:8, the WLC continues without a sof pasuq (but 
with a transcription note). The JPS Tanach inserts a sof pasuq. I find 
that all other verses in the WLC end in a sof pasuq.

The WLC splits Isaiah 63:19 - 64:1 at the sof pasuq.  The JPS Tanach 
leaves the chapter split  ambiguous in both the Hebrew and English.

Three instances were found  in which a paragraph-marking samekh (Job 
42:11) or pe (Joshua 12:8, 2 Samuel 22:51) were not properly tagged in 
the Unicode/XML Tanach.  This results in an undercount of the paragraph 
markers and an over count of consonants. Repairs are underway.
