[bksvol-discuss] Re: What about bullets in Braille?

There are many marks in print, or "upper ASCII" which have no Braille 
equivalent, since Braille did not evolve beyond 6 dots, and 8 bit ASCII has 
more combinations, though I am sure there are some marks, not all, including 
the ASCII 151 character. :)

In Braille, the closest approximation to a bullet is represented by an 
asterisk.  They don't have anything strictly corresponding to a bullet.

  What about bullets? Those spots that come before a line of text? Does Braille 
handle them? I think the Braille use of three apostrophes to indicate an 
ellipsis is interesting. Also, in print, ellipses are not always periods with a 
space in between each. I have seen them as three periods squeezed into a single 
space, so squished that you can hardly tell they are periods.

   

  Oh well.

   

  Still curious about bullets though.
