Linda the reason you give for making an unmerged match makes no sense to me because there is no such thing as a single standard spelling in the 1500s. Normal words could be spelled in different ways within one paragraph. Also, if we are uncertain about a match we can always just leave it for a while. Creating an unmerged match does not help other editors in this situation?
