    In the attachment, the wording of the notice is centered in print. Should these lines also be centered in braille? It seems intuitive to do so, but I'm not aware of a braille rule that warrants centering in this case since it's not a heading. Another option is to treat them as multiple displayed sentences and therefore format them in 3-5 (Braille Formats Example 9-4 in 9.2.2.e).

    Thank you for your help.

    The print centering is intended to simulate a poster or sign (as I am sure you are aware).  It's a visual thing and should not be replicated in braille.  In this case, what is important is what the sign is saying.  You have two options (as I see it).  You can box it (to set it off from the text more) and then do the first line as a heading and the rest as either a list or a paragraph...Or you can treat it as displayed, again with a heading and a list or paragraph (with adjusted margins).
