I completed my braille course for my graduate classes last year and there
was no mention of any such changes. I know the unified Braille Code was
passed, but whether or not BANA has adopted it, I'm not sure.

I had not heard that "to" and "by" were now being separated and hope it isn't true. In the book I am validating, most of the time these words are contracted and adjoin the following word. The reason I asked the question is that I have no idea how I could correct this. Does this have to do with the Duxbury translation, and if so, I wonder why it isn't always done.

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?
