David,

Thanks for the report.  I count this as one issue, because the [ps]...[pe]
encoding around the letters "st" causes both problems in the braille.

I'm not yet certain what we'll do about it -- presumably something, because
I agree that it is an issue.  Joe and I will try to come to some agreement
next week.  I've put the problem on file with reference #1582.

Best Regards,

Peter

Two other issues have been pointed out to me.

The first is that in the British translation 

1st of May 

does not come out correctly from a WORD document as the ST contraction is
not used. 

The error only occurs when in WORD the Autoformat is set to make ordinals
superscripts. However, as this is the normal method of writing ordinals it
is an issue.

The second issue is that there is a problem with sentences in italics. 

I think that both of these are shown in the following ascii where the first
'1st of May' is with the st as a superscript and the second is not. They are
both in italics with a gap of ordinary text between. The italic signing is
quite different.


..#ast ( ,may.'
,&a gap
.#a/ .( .,may
