I have not received the print sample I asked for with regard to the first question. I really need a print sample for your question as well. I simply cannot give the best answer I can find with just a tiny snippet. I need to see the context. Please send the page that has each of these situations. For instance, the a tilde does not occur in Spanish. Is the word that you have in another language? Do you know what language it is? That is one of the reasons I need to have a context.
I agree that your second question is probably someone's name. I need to see other instances as well.
