[duxhelp] Re: British code and roman numerals

Jack,

This question may best be addressed directly to Joe.  It is beyond my
knowledge of translation details.

I will bring it to his attention, as I will all translation problems
reported "on list".  But I must generally simply pass these things on
without comment back to the list.

Best Regards,

Peter

What causes DBT to treat Roman numerals differently than any other letter
groups, as far as translation? I can see where they might not do as they are
told with respect to formatting.  It is amazing how much difference use and
non-use of the capital sign  makes in writing and computing, where a good
braille reader doesn't notice. I don't remember whether something I read is
transcribed using BANA or BAUK rules from day to day. I might well be the
only one on the list who is the only end user, as I am not in the business
of producing braille.

Jack
