Good morning! My question has to do with what is considered the margin when ending a spatial math problem in a UEB with Nemeth transcription. It is for a 2nd grade math workbook. Provisional guidelines, Section 5b, on the BANA website state the following:
... When Nemeth mode is closed after a spatial problem, the Nemeth Code terminator is placed at the margin on a line by itself and is preceded by the required blank line (the blank lines around spatial problems are done in Nemeth mode). ---
For my project,throughout the book, I have a series of illustrative material--pictures with captions--that I've set up in 7/5 where there are spatial problems in the middle of of the captions.I am hesitant to put the NC terminator in cell 1, for it makes it unclear then that it is all within a caption. Do you think that when they say the terminator is placed at the margin after a blank line following the spatial problem, they mean the left margin (cell 1) or do you think they mean the margin in effect, which would depend?
Thank you for your help. Susan edited by SBaker on 6/17/2015
After conferring with my (excellent) committee, I can tell you that overall we think you should use the margin in effect. That is, your NC terminator after a spatial problem in a picture caption should be in cell 5.
Even after the Guidance for Transcription Using the Nemeth Code within UEB Context, that was approved in June of this year, I assume this is still the proper interpretation of this situation ? I see they still did not change the language in that.
What would you recommend when itemized material is involved? I have attached an example with just such an instance. The termination indicator would interfere with the itemized entry that follows. If there had been additional text to the itemized entries that follow this would only exacerbate the issue more.
