Hi Christian:

I have been using files translated and downloaded directly to a notetaker,
Braille lite m40.  Running the same file under an autobuild, the capital
sign translated correctly. I haven't attempted to look at this with a
braille display, but as Emile says the capital sign is embossing correctly,
I think I know how to go about troubleshooting the problem.
