Hi Christian,

Although I do not foresee any major changes, it may pay to wait a few days.

You will note that there are a some common areas throughout, such as 
sub-headings.  If you also look closely, you will see various Word Styles have 
been used which are specific to things like DBT codes, and DB text which 
(certainly in English) need to be treated specially when going into braille.

If you need more details, feel free to contact me off list.

All the best,

George Bell.
