    Braille Formats 4.8.1 says that we need to follow print for emphasis and capitalization of paragraph headings, and that fully capitalized headings don't need extra emphasis. But what if only some of the paragraph headings are fully capitalized? This happens quite frequently when a story problem is identified as a STEM problem (where others are labeled as things like Financial Literacy or Health and Fitness). Do we maintain the bold on STEM for consistency across paragraph headings, or do we follow the "letter of the law" and omit the bold? (Note: in my other book, there are bold paragraph headings and colored paragraph headings, which may affect the decision. The example picture below is from the companion/homework book, which is entirely black and white.)

    For consistency, STEM should also be bold. In this case STEM is capitalized because it is an acronym not because it is a paragraph heading.

    That's what I thought, thanks!
