Thank you Lindy. Your solution makes sense. The transcriber's note is a good way to make it clear to the reader, so I'm good with that.
Except for the fact that it was requested this way, do you see any good reason why something like this even needs to be in Nemeth Code? It seems to me UEB has everything needed to represent this material. If the reader is proficient in UEB, then what advantage is there in going back and forth between codes? I really want to understand the reasoning behind these requests.
Here's a small sample. If the IP addresses, etc. are not Nemeth, would I use the Nemeth punctuation indicator prior to the "dot" in the equation?
Convert the answer back into decimal:
11000000.10101000.01100100.01110000 = 192.168.100.112
The IP address 188.8.131.52 belongs to the 192.168.100.112 network when a mask of 255.255.255.240 is used.
Thank you Kyle. I especially appreciate the reference to the NC rule. (Something I'd long ago forgotten.)
Since the hexadecimal column must be in NC I think I'll try the switches in the box lines method you suggested. Inconvenient pretty much describes what transcribing that middle column will be! Oh boy.
Wow, you are fast! And awesome. 🙂

Thank you Rebecca. I too had concerns about trying to use the Antoine Numerical Notation without some guidance. I appreciate your help. 🙂
This is what works for me: Left click (and hold) at the top of the PDF, drag to one side of your screen and release. Do the same with Braille2000 to the other side of your screen. I have a wide-screen monitor so I don't know how that will work on a smaller screen.
Thanks to both of you. I have a better understanding now. (It certainly will be nice when/if we get some official TG guidelines regarding Nemeth within UEB transcriptions.)
I have a Juliet that I'm thinking of selling. If you're interested, e-mail me at email@example.com.
Sounds like a reasonable plan. Thanks for the quick response!
I would use caution with the Instruction Manual for Braille Transcribing ... it is NOT a rulebook, only a guideline. And ... thus far, I have yet to find an instruction manual without errors. In the items you listed below, it is very evident to me, that Methylcyclopropene is not a number. But you did ask what the rule stated. Perhaps a phonecall to Jennifer Dunnam can provide you with a better answer. Let me know what she says. 🙂
Regarding your last sentence: "Even if the percent sign was not there, the letter sign would still NOT be needed."
It sure seems like there's no good reason to include the letter indicator (as far as readability), but EBAE Rule VII.28.e.(3) shows this example: $2.29/gal. with a letter indicator included after the slash. Also, the Instruction Manual for Braille Transcribing, section 12.1d(3) shows this example: $20/per hour with a letter indicator included after the slash. Even though I don't think it's a rule, do you think the cap indicators are the justification for not including a letter indicator in my example?

Works for me. Thanks!
After conferencing with some colleagues, the general consensus is that this should be treated the same way the trademark symbol is brailled.
Using the dots 45, letter s. Spaced as in print and listed on the SS page or at the point of usage.
I hope this helps.
