The lower case Y and lower case g could be confused.  Both have a "tail 
pointing down, and depending on the font, the y and g both have a "cup" 
ontop of the tail.  The difference is the G is closed into a circule while 
the y is left open.

Let me think, hmmm, how would you describe that in braille.

Smile. hmmm.

well, I don't think there is a way, smile.

But I hope this helps, smile.

There was a couple of guys who created a system for teaching print letters 
using the braille sell, I shall have to dig it up.  Oh, wait.

O.k. smile, imagine the braille cell.

A y, would be dots 1, connected to 2, and a line going from 2 to 5, and then 
a like connecting 4, 5, 6.  The g would be a box, made of dogs 1, 2, 4, 5 
all connected, and then a line going down from 5, to 6.

Smile.  visualation aside, but that is the difference between a lower case g 
and y.

I learned print, and read print all the way up to two years ago, in come 
compasity or another, am now a full time braille reader, and do miss the 
"little things" I could do myself, in print.

But hey you get the cards you are dealt.  And there are positives to this 
blindness thing I am learning, not seing the Burger King commercial for the 
Chicken Baccon Cheddar Ranch, or so my parents says is quite a blessing, 
smile.

I finally got mine up.  Didn't do anythinng different, just tried again.

Here's a scanno I haven't seen.  In the book I just uploaded called "The
Memory Bible" the letter y was almost always g, as in memorg, glossarg, the
author's first name Garg or Yrag.  <lol>  Do I am wondering if y and g look
anything alike.

That is sometimes the only thing I have found to work, smile.

Was validating a book and said that my long synopsis was too long.  How, I
can't tell, because it made it through the first submission just fine, so
can't figure that one.

Well, I'm having "that problem" now even though I have used all the tips we
know.  It keeps saying "this is not a valid RTF file", but dammit, IT IS!!
<smile>  Guess I'll try later.
