Regarding the portions highlighted in green in the attached pdf, the following is how I interpret RUEB concerning when to use long dashes, dashes and hyphens (in particular 7.2.4):
- On page 4: long dash in braille
- On page 5 and 21: dash in braille
- On page 14: hyphen in braille
Perhaps I've misunderstood when to use the long dash, but the above seems to be what is indicated in RUEB 7.2.4 since print shows three distinct punctuation signs, each of which is used differently. Prior to UEB, we would have inferred from the context when to use the dash or the hyphen, so perhaps I'm still biased to that practice. But it seems that using the two different dashes in cases like this may make it unnecessarily complicated. (This could be of particular concern when brailling a large book in which the transcriber doesn't encounter the second type of dash in print until quite late in the book.)
I'd really appreciate any thoughts/guidance.
