@DanF "These hafatarot are already designated for each of these parshiot." My point exactly. You've in your whole life never even seen the originals printed! Sad :(

"Shabbat Hazon, e.g. does not pre-empt the regular weekly haftarah." Actually, it does. Just it has preempted it for so long that most people have forgotten it exists. Sad :(
