Section 11.3.2 of Formats 2011 deals with sequentially numbered tables. Subsection c states that when a table is longer than one braille page “The table number is repeated and centered on the last line of each succeeding page, followed by (cont.).
I am transcribing a text book in which the tables are sequentially numbered in each chapter (TABLE 1.1, TABLE 1.2, etc.) Some of these “tables” are just long lists or even a full page of text. In this case putting the (cont.) line at the end of each braille page seems disruptive.
I’m not understanding what it is about the fact that the table is numbered sequentially that requires this format. Or if this format is useful for any multiple-page table, I’m not understanding why it’s only specified for sequentially numbered tables.
I guess the bottom line is, am I using this format for tables to which it does not apply?
Thank-you for so generously sharing your expertise. BTW, I think that Formats 2011 is beautifully laid out and I do appreciate all the hard work that went into it.
