There's an unpleasant case at the border between chapters 12 & 13 of
Revelation.  Older verstifications (e.g. KJV, NIV, NKJV?) end ch 12 with
verse 17.  If this is the case and the edition divides into 
paragraphs/sections, then chapter 13 begins immediately before the end of 
the final paragraph/section of chapter 12.  Rev 13:1 is actually half in 
one paragraph/section and half in another.

Newer versifications add a Rev 12:18 and put half of the old Rev 13:1 into 
that verse so that the chapter/section/paragraph/verse hierarchy doesn't 
have any overlap.
