    Thank you Lindy!  That was my guess, but I wanted to be sure!

    The attached file is something I came up with, but hope to get some feedback within the next couple weeks as the work is due Nov 1.

    I put the arrows above blank lines as shown in print and used top cell for those so that the arrows are sitting on them better.  And I used dot 5 as guide dots as it appears to be an image of a diagram with labels.  Hope this works, but I am open to your recommendations.  Someone else is working on part of this book so we're looking for consistency.  Thanks!

    Hi Lindy,

    Thank you for answering my questions with a helpful suggestion.  I have a couple more questions regarding the valence arrows.

    My first question has to do with the blank lines over the 2p, following the valence arrows.  Because in your example, you used one separation line under the sp, with one space between the valence arrows, but in the case of blank lines ... do I make two separation lines, or use a space within one separation line?

    My second question has to do with the more complex display with the elipses as shown in the attachment.  Apparently the elipses are pointing to the various components of the display?

    Thank you for your time.

    I am wondering if the attached braille is an accurate solution to my question.

    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!
