According to the new guidelines, it seems that "Key:" should always be in cell 7 and the whole key should always be enclosed in TN symbols, even if "Key" is in print and/or there is a print key or legend. Is this a correct interpretation?
Hi Julie, I can't say that I have ever seen the word Key as a heading in print, though Legend is often used. According to the draft guidelines, the word "Key:" should begin in cell 7, followed by a blank line, and then the list of keyed items, all enclosed within transcriber's note symbols. The transcriber has usually added either the area, line, point, or alphabetic symbols, which is why the whole thing is placed within transcriber's note symbols. Print legend symbols are always incorporated with the rest of the transcriber-assigned symbols. Betty
