Hi again.  As long as you are considering how DBT imports lists from
Scientific Notebook, I figured I'd toss out the following discovery for your
consideration.  But first a quick disclaimer:  
To paraphrase Shaw:  Those who can do math, do math. Those who can't (but
who can do technology) teach TVIs how to use Scientific Notebook. :)
I'm looking at the book Learning the Nemeth Braille Code (1987).  Based on
the examples on pages 62 and 71, it seems that DBT does not correctly handle
primes (the apostrophes; not the numbers) when there is also a subscript
involved.  So x' is rendered correctly, but x'(sub1) is not.  See attached.
Thanks and take care.
