The file that caused the problem is attached. However I need to amend
what I have said slightly.
I used Word2Tex, as I usually do, to change the file into a .tex file
that SN will read. I did not check the SN file before using DBT and got
the result I mentioned. Looking more closely at the WORD original the A
was italic not the closing bracket. In SN this came out as the opening
bracket in text the A and the closing bracket in Math and hence the
result I got in DBT. I should have spotted this fact so apologies for
giving a false impression of the problem. 
I was going into SN because of all the mathematics that was in the WORD
file in MathType and the route I follow gets that into reasonable
braille mathematics. However, if you ignore the mathematics issues and
just got straight into DBT from the files I have attached the The
results of going straight into DBT 
The version with (A) in bold gives 
7..,a.'.17.'
And the version witgh (A) in non bold gives 
.7.,a.17.'
Whereas I would expect (A) to be
7;,a7
as happens in other files. So there must be something rather peculiar
about the two WORD files that I have attached. I have looked at them but
cannot see what would cause such peculiar results.

David,

Do you have a sample file in the format from which you started (e.g.
Word,
Scientific Notebook, text, or HTML)?

It is strange how mistakes show up errors!

I have just had
(A)
translated as
7,a>
rather than 7,a7
I could not understand why until I realised that the closing bracket was
in
italics by mistake. However I am not sure why DBT translated this as it
did.
