    This is the examples. One in the braille without guide dots according to 11.2.4e and 8.5 unrelated columns. And the print for verification.

    So for confirmation there are no guide dots required due to the fact that these are unrelated columns and are treated as a list.


    No guide dots for unrelated columns. The trick is in deciding whether the columns are related or not. Related columns, as defined in 11.24 the you correctly refer to, are columns that are related ACROSS. And the example shown in Formats on this point shows the past and past participle of the SAME VERB, awake. Those columns are read across to make sense and therefore, are related and get guide dots. In your example, however, just looking at the first two columns, the forms of the verbs ANDAR and IR/SER have no relationship with EACH OTHER. They are separate lists that are printed next to each other. So, they are unrelated as columns, even though they deal with the same thing, the forms of different irregular verbs. That material is not read ACROSS in order to make sense. Each column makes sense all by itself.


    Thank you again so much!!!
