While grateful for the folks who spent so
much time 'collecting' tunes, in the 1700's,
for example... they had the same problems
that we have.

And then... copying and printing errors,
etc., and changes in 'styles' of how we
notate and print embellishments.

Some printed embellishment 'variations'
I've found are closer to what's done,
than our 'standard' notation dictates. ;-)
