Now that I've read this 20 times, I can see I was allowing a
blank cell AFTER the column.

Interesting - and should stretch Joe's mind a shade!

The minimum number of guide dots within a table of contents
is 2. The 
minimum number for tables is 3 (4 or more blank cells ...
leave 1 space 
blank before inserting guide dots WITHIN the column).

Hi Lissa and Peter,

Just going over some old messages that needed a degree of
research.

The following may help clarify and comes from BANA's web
page at: 
http://www.brl.org/formats/

I read both cases as meaning a minimum of 2 guide dots, not
three.

Under "Tables of Contents"

(4) Guide dots. A series of unspaced guide dots (5),
preceded and 
followed by a blank cell, should be inserted between the
last word of a 
contents item and its page number. However, unless there is
space for 
two or more guide dots the page number must follow the item
with no 
guide dots inserted.

Under "Tables"

8g. Guide dots in columns of a table. When four or more
blank cells are 
left after a short item in a column that is followed on the
same braille 
line by entries in other columns, leave one blank cell
before inserting 
a series of the unspaced guide dot symbol (5) within the
column. NOTE: 
Guide dots may be inserted following runovers of row
headings, but must 
not be inserted following any column runover. See Section
8b(1) above.

George.

Lissa,

I don't know of a way to do this, and didn't find anything
in the online 
help. I'll check with Joe about it when he returns to the
office on the 
tenth.

Hi,

I just realized that the [tab##lp"] command puts in guide
dots if there 
is room for two or more guide dots. This is true of a table
of contents 
(where I use the [frp"] command), but Thora Dumont just
reminded me that 
in a table, the rule is three guide dots or more, not two.
Is there a 
way to modify this behavior? Thanks.

Lissa
