Modern Critical Texts & Homoeoteleuton

Click to Enlarge
Here is a chart showing the main omissions in Matthew, with homoeoteleuton errors marked in green.  Alongside are the major Greek New Testaments, with their readings and formats:

om    = text is omitted
om/u = omitted and omission is Undocumented.
h.t.    = homoeoteleuton omission
[sb]    = single brackets indicating doubt
[[db]] = double brackets means editors think text is spurious addition.

 One can see that not only do most modern critical Greek texts follow Hort's text closely, they also copy most of his mistaken judgments regarding homoeoteleuton errors, apparently oblivious to the destructive consequences for the NT text.
