Hi, Saralyn,
Thanks for the reply, but we are still confused. Hotel names are not like book titles, ships, etc. They are not typically italicized. (I checked with a professional editor.) But I know we must italicize following print, so I will not argue with the italicization in these examples. As a transcriber, I can only assume that the emphasis exists for a reason, which the print author/editor decided upon. So now I'm back to my original question: what is really the difference between these two examples?

p.s. According to English style manuals, bird names are not capitalized, but again, that's up to the print author/editor, and we braille accordingly.

Thanks again,
Ruth Rozen
