Which Numbering is better?

I prefer the Reyhan version because it looks more beautiful and also it's clearer where an ayeh is ended. In the Aziz version, the Ayat numbering is blended into the text and it's not obvious that we should stop at that point.

Thanks Bahman Eslami
How about whitening (coloring or hiding) it, taken into account that it serves nothing but indexing?!

Hiding could work as an indication for a full stop, but it I thought you wanted a comment on design of the ayat numbers glyph? Without this numbering, the reader couldn't find the ayeh which he is looking for. I don't agree with coloring though.

@ ِِMight indicate a full stop or another punctuation mark?!

@ Will Gray (40% black) do?!

Glancing at this, it seems to me that the criticism of the Aziz is valid, but the Reyhan is a bit too small. Looking at images on the Web of copies of the Qur'an, it indeed appears that existing ones do tend to look like the Reyhan, but with significantly larger Ayat numbers than that example, although still smaller than the Aziz.

I know I'm hardly qualified to comment on such a matter, but it seems like no benefit to the reader is gained by attempting to increase or decrease the size of Ayat numbers from current conventional practice to the extent shown.

This is a picture of a copy the Qur'an

similar to others I have found on the Web, so I presume the relative size of the Ayat numerals is conventional there.

@ Number Size does not matter as long as it is searchable?!
In which file, the numbers are searchable: YS-Aziz or YS-Reyhan?!

Is the searchable numbering getting better?!

Thanks Ahmadkhan12 for the link with sprinkles of Rose Water.
Does http://quranacademylive.com/ have a clear-cut answer to verse 7 of chapter 3 that ends with these lines:
[ But no one knows its (Quran) interpretation except Allah and those firmly grounded in knowledge; they say, We believe in it; all of it is from our Lord. And none takes admonition except those who possess intellect]

Q: Which reading is correct: A or B?
______________________A______________________
But no one knows its (Quran) interpretation except Allah [a must-stop].
And those firmly grounded in knowledge say, We believe in it; all of it is from our Lord.
______________________B______________________
But no one knows its (Quran) interpretation except Allah and those firmly grounded in knowledge;
And they (those firmly grounded in knowledge say) say, We believe in it; all of it is from our Lord.
_____________________________________________
If A is correct,
1. Why did Allah send down the Glorious Quran if no one save He Knows it?!
2. What do the rest of Muslims say? If as those firmly grounded in knowledge say, then
3. What distinguishes those firmly grounded in knowledge?

If B is correct, who are those firmly grounded in knowledge?
