Thanks Peter. Once UEB is introduced it will not be a problem as UEB will have different signs for different characteristics such as boldface, italics, underlining etc. So hurry up UEB and in the meantime, I will continue to edit out the additional commands, but just thought it worth bringing to your attention.

Christine,

This is, unfortunately, beyond what we can do for our current release.

Hello,

I notice when using DBT beta 4, that DBT is still treating the importing of
bolded, underlined and italicised text wrongly when more than one of these
conditions apply.  This has not yet been corrected.

Eg:  if text is for exampled bolded and italicised, the translater uses both
the opening and closing codes for both bolding and italics thus giving a
string of dots 46 four times before the first word and twice before the
fourth, or subsequent word.

I know that currently in Braille, bolding, italics and underlining are all
indicated in the same way with the use of the dots 46, but surely, DBT can
be programmed to look for combinations of these and if found, surpress
additional codes.

It is nothing short of rediculous to read strings of dots 46 before words,
when in Braille they are currently doing nothing more than giving emphasis
to the words concerned as the reader does not know how those words were
presented in print other than the fact that they were intended to be
emphasised and consequently to stand out.
