At the risk of giving more information than anyone wants, here's my best
understanding of the rules for showing emphasis within CBC.

To indicate the primary type of emphasis within CBC in a document the
opening indicator is dots 456, 16, and the closing indicator is dots 456,
34.

A transcriber can also assign two other sets of indicators for a second type
and third type of emphasis within CBC in a document.

For the second type of emphasis, the opening indicator is dots 456, 2346,
and the closing indicator is the usual dots 456, 156.

For the third type of emphasis, the opening indicator is dots 456, 46, and
the closing indicator is the usual dots 456, 156.

I don't have my hands on the current BANA rule book for Computer Braille
Code.  I find that in the MegaDots implementation the primary CBC emphasis
indicators (dots 456, 16 and 456, 34) are used for italics, and the user can
specify which types of emphasis are to be assigned the other two sets of CBC
emphasis indicators (if they are called for).  On the other hand,
Information on the ICEB web site suggests that the primary CBC emphasis
indicators can be assigned to the appropriate type of emphasis in a
document, not necessarily italics.

For background, MegaDots also gives the user an opportunity to choose from a
variety of methods for showing hyperlinks.  These  include enclosing the
hyperlink label within a set of parentheses, a set of double parentheses, a
set of brackets, etc.  However, I do not think that these methods for
showing hyperlinks are called for in any official rules in CBC or any other
BANA code.

Ok...
I looked in the computer braille code quick reference and as I suspected
memory failed me ... <grin>
I couldn't find a way to indicate that something is underlined of bold.
The closest thing I could find was emphasis start and end.
Would this be used as unserlined text denotation?

Yes. I thought that is how things were supposed to be.
Is that not correct?

Subject: [duxhelp] Compinline codes

         Hi All,

I have been trying out the "compinline" code and believe that there
still may be an error with it.

Some weeks ago I raised the concern about how it was dealing with text.
Peter and Jo gave this a lot of time and that problem seems to have been
solved.  However,  I note that when text which in word is formatted as a
hyperlink  is imported into DBT10.5, it is surrounded by the compinline
codes - and so it should be.  However, the problem is that the
underlining is being shown and so,  a web address which comes from word
into DBT comes as:

<compinline>[fts~u]www.duxburysystems.com[fte~u]</compinline>

and the web address appears in computer code brackets with dots 4-6
(between the opening code and the first w) to indicate the underlined
text.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Many thanks

Christine
