We should definitely receive guidance from bookshare staff regarding these
issues.  I am not certain whether Bookshare has started using the new
literary braille yet.

The new braille code separates "by" from all other words, also "to" is
separated.  Since they are also separated in print, I don't think you should
correct that.  On my braille display, which is translating print text into
grade two contracted braille, "to" and "by" are always separated from the
following word.  Did I understand your question right?

I am validating a book in text format on the BrailleNote but reading in
grade 2. What should I do when I see such words as "by" or "to" not attached
to the following word? If I can't do anything to correct that now, won't it
also show up in the final version (something I have seen quite often).
Suggestions anyone?
