So I am still confused by the wording of 10.6.2. I did look at the top of page 118 and the way I read it is referencing the beginning of the word and type-forms and punctuation that may precede. As I wrote in my example disappointed is the word I am using. At the bottom of page 117 it talks about what can follow the lower sign and I do not see type-forms terminators listed as something allowed. I do find in 2.6.3 at the top of page 117 that it is OK for letter or letters- sequence to be followed by type-form terminators. Is this the rule I should reference for this lower sign situation? FYI Braille 2000 reads the contraction as a period.
