I have a question to add. how do we terminate the keyed label? BF 16.9.1h states:
“A spaced termination indicator follows the completion of the labeled passage.”
EBAE uses dots 6,3 to terminate everything; underlining, single letter emphasis, colored typeforms, highlighting, etc.
UEB usually adds a dot 3 to the symbol to terminate the effect of the symbol. Do we add a dot 3 to the keyed label to terminate the label, that way if there is more than 1 label we can terminate them in the order they need to be? Otherwise are we to throw a 6,3 in and let the reader figure out what label was terminated?
EXAMPLE: [simbraille].#?ma[/simbraille] This is an example of marginal material. [simbraille].#?ma'[/simbraille]
I know we are not supposed to create our own symbols, however, sometimes you must think of what might aid the student in understanding what is effected and where it ends (in order).
