George,

We may be able to do something sooner than you think.  I'll have a look at
David's sample file when the day's "to-do" list is wrapped up.

The approach that we took to solve the "st problem" allows us to do some
other cleanup without a lot of trouble.  However, the cleanup will either be
done or not done -- we cannot easily put in a prompt.  Moreover, I'm not
sure whether this particular issue will lend itself to the approach we can
easily use.

David,
 
You have a good point here.
 
This has actually come up before in Word where a space can and does have a
character style attached to it.
 
Going by the attached, it looks like the problem may have been resolved as
far as the Word Importer is concerned.  You will notice that the word
"partly" on the second line has italic spaces, where it does not in the
previous line.
 
I agree that it seems illogical to have a space after the fts, or before fte
codes.
 
Can anyone comment to the contrary?
 
PETER - for the Database
 
In the next incarnation of DBT, I'd love to see a "Code Validation" feature
which in this example would come up and say, "Hey, you've got a space before
an Italics code - Leave, or remove?
 
George.
 
George.

Mike

In testing the 1st of May issue I wrote 

 

The 1st of May is a Wednesday

 

But unfortunately had a space after the 'Wednesday'. As a result the closing
italic sign came on the next line 

 

..,! #a/ ( ,may is a ,w$nes"d

.'

 

Is there anyway this can be stopped. Normally redundant spaces do not show
in the Braille but it was picked up here.

 

 

The ST sign is now coming out fine!

 

David
