    What is the correct Braille for 1st, 3rd, 4th? Where in the Formats book is this mentioned? Thanks. Don

    Transcribing ordinal numbers is a UEB code issue - not a formats issue.  Because the numeric indicator sets grade 1 mode, no contractions can be used in ordinal endings (1st, 4th).  See UEB 6.5.3  If an ordinal ending is in the superscript position in print, this can be ignored in braille (no superscript required).
