It would seem to me that if the textbook has already explained that a vertical bar has been replaced with a colon, then to change it again in the braille just adds unnecessary confusion. Although we know how it [u]should[/u] be transcribed in braille, by keeping the information the same as the print, the reader will then have the same information as the rest of the class and be able to understand any discussion regarding the print rendition. Our job is to transcribe, not interpret.
This is just my opinion, not something that is addressed in Nemeth Code.
