1. In "The ABCs of UEB", rule 4.3 states that terminators will be used when more than one indicator is used for "a word or phrase" while "Rules of Unified English Braille" say "for the same text". Neither has an example of one word, just phrases. Should terminators be used if more than one indicator is used on a single word?
No. If you have one word that is both bold and italic, you may use the bold word indicator and the italic indicator with no blank spaces. The space following the word would terminate both bold and italic.
2. When pages are numbered with Roman numerals and the page requires a Grade 1 indicator before it (e.g. page x), should the Grade 1 indicator be used on the Braille reference page (e.g. a;x b;x c;x …)?
No, use the grade 1 indicator on the roman numeral.
