Regarding your last sentence: "Even if the percent sign was not there, the letter sign would still NOT be needed."
It sure seems like there's no good reason to include the letter indicator (as far as readability), but EBAE Rule VII.28.e.(3) shows this example: $2.29/gal. with a letter indicator included after the slash. Also, the Instruction Manual for Braille Transcribing, section 12.1d(3) shows this example: $20/per hour with a letter indicator included after the slash. Even though I don't think it's a rule, do you think the cap indicators are the justification for not including a letter indicator in my example?
