    I have attached a sample of a web address, can you please advise if the space at the end of the line after the continuation indicator counts and terminates grade one and numberic mode.

    5.6.2 When grade 1 mode is set by the numeric indicator it is terminated by a space, hyphen, dash or grade 1 terminator.

    Hello Kim,

    In your example, the three lines that end with a line continuation indicator (dot 5) leave several cells empty at the end of the lines. These blank cells are not spaces that would terminate grade 1 mode that was set by the last numeric indicator. The line continuation indicator tells the reader that the electronic address continues on the next line because the symbols-sequence is too long for the line.

    As such, with on the next line is in grade 1 mode that was set by the last numeric indicator and may not be contracted unless you terminate grade 1 mode after the previous numeric sequence. Whether you terminate grade 1 or spell-out with, you will not save space, but in either case, the four contractions that follow the first hyphen in the remaining symbols-sequnce may be used.

    You may want to refer to UEB §5.9.1 to decide if you want to  use a grade 1 terminator to "present words in their familiar contracted form," or spell it out to "minimize the number of indicators."

    I hope this helps. (I posted the same answer in your previous post.) Please let us know if you have any other questions or comments.

    Exactly, Dan.

    The end of a braille line counts as a braille space unless the dot 5 continuation indicator is used.

    Thank you for the question, Kim.

    For what it's worth, I would be inclined to avoid use of the grade 1 terminator and transcribe your example as follows.

    ,may #bj1 #bjag1 https3_/_/www4npr4"
    org_/#bjag_/#je_/#bj_/#ebibcbhbc_/"
    with-lee-/atues-removal-ano!r-battle-"
    (-new-orl1ns-comes-to-a-close4

    because I don't love the readability of

    ,may #bj1 #bjag1 https3_/_/www4npr4"
    org_/#bjag_/#je_/#bj_/#ebibcbhbc_/;'"
    )-lee-/atues-removal-ano!r-battle-"
    (-new-orl1ns-comes-to-a-close4

    But either of the transcriptions above would be accurate.
