    Thank you Kyle!  I like your second sample.  And thanks for references in the current instruction manual!

    I am still awaiting a confirmation.  Thank you!

    The UEB Codebook does not appear to use 7-5 indents for transcriber notes (3.27), but the notes appear to be embedded with the regular text format.   Are we doing away with the 7-5 indents for transcriber notes?   How about notes before a wide table?

    I have given my suggestion about formatting this table. You are free to follow it or not. You are the transcriber. I respectfully disagree with you about the “en” column being any different than the others. Again, you are the transcriber. I am also going to respectfully suggest that this topic has now been discussed as much as it can be.

    Thank you! I’ve been using the online HTML version of the code book, which does not display page numbers. Now I see the advantage of downloading the pdf version!!

    The index refers to PAGE numbers, not section numbers. See PAGE 18-7. Directions are given for the exact same thing you have and a sample follows that shows exactly how to do it in braille.

    I did not read the Formats section carefully and asked for help. Look at all of Section 5 very carefully. Most of the material in this section is new. Bold italics is treated in sections 5.1-5.4 especially. Look at the examples.

    Section 5.1.4 lists new symbols to be used for multiple attributes. Notice the double bold italics indicator, 46,456,46,46. This is the double indicator to use that indicates BOTH italics and bold in a series of 4 or more words. The closing indicator is a single italic, followed by a single bold.

    Here is your first series of 4 or more bold italics words:

    After I finished my work,

    [simbraille]._..,AF ,I F9I%$ MY ._.”W1[/simbraille]

    See Section 5.4 for various combinations of italics and boldface. An entire series of 4 or more words in both bold and italics is not shown in examples, but the double bold italics indicator addresses that situation. Closing is done by using each closing symbol for the type of emphasis being closed.

    Other types of font atttibutes, such as colored type, underlining, highlighting and so forth use the termination indicator and are handled entirely differently. This entire section on font attributes needs to be studied as it is being used, especially for the first times. Almost all of the material in it is new.

    Hi Beth,

    Thank you for sending the print page. I’m not sure what you are asking here. You refer to double italics and how to close them. Are you asking how to close double bold and double bold italics? Secion 5.4 gives several examples of various combination of italics and boldface that show opening and closing. Perhaps it would help if you indicate which specific text on your print example page you are questioning and we can figure out how to do it.

    Oh, thank you! I’ll read more carefully through the Index!

    Oh! Thank you Joanna! I didn’t think to look in Section 17 for symbols to include on the Special Symbols page. That section seems to be specifically for spellers and grammar, which I happen to be working with, but what about the other math symbols in other literary textbooks? And what about the other signs listed in the “General Purpose Symbols”? Don’t they also need to be listed on the Special Symbols page? If so, it seems to me that this should be mentioned in Section 2.5. Thanks again!

    Hi, I have been working through the new Guidelines and I can’t find any requirement to list the Mathematical symbols shown in the “General Purpose Symbols”, on the Special Symbols page. Would you please help me find where that requirement is stated? Thank you!
