They are?   I'm a proofreader, and haven't seen that ruling yet. The 
contraction for by is was, when separated from the word. So by and to would 
have to be uncontracted at all times.

I don't think you should fix the braille errors, since that would depend on the 
translation program used.

  Hi, 

  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?
