Hi All:

It seems to me, that translation tables are a very separate issue, and as
Peter has pointed out, something that is not likely to be addressed before
10.5.  I am a full supporter of UEBC, but it seemss to be endorsed more
heavily by Canada and Australia, to the exclusion of BAUK and Bana
countries.  In that context, it would be a tragedy if we had yet one more
system, competing with the two already in use throughout the English
Speaking world.  The patent advantage of UEBC is a highly flexible
translation tables that reduces special input of signs in technical
notation.  This is a godsend for good braille readers, who do not have to be
tied down to a particular code.

I am very interested in the ways UEBC is being used in Australia, as I have
little idea, about how material transcribed in the Math and computer codes,
used in Australia is done.

All the best

Jack
