Hi, well, the BLE should be fairly obvious: how to back translate strings
with numbers in the middle of them, where this sign would be translated one
way or the other, but not necesarily the correct way. As for To, you will
find there are no sequenced signs in UEB at all, so where there is a space
in print, you will get one in Braille. Also, who is to say that you couldn't
soon start to get strings starting with an exclamation mark?

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave,
Just one thing why I complained about the code in the first place, I wonder if you might know the reason why, but why did some contractions, example the
number sign for the ble and the lower f for to get dropped?  I know it
sounds stupid, but I don't see how it caused any confusion? Some others I
think I can understand, like the com, dis, con, ong, ally, and ation, but I
often feel weird when I read something in UEBC and see ble and some other
stuff written out like that.
