It turns out that we are going to need to do another build for another round
of beta testing, because embosser settings are not "sticking" to embossers.
This is a defect in a supported feature, so we must fix it.

This means that the fix for the missing equation problem that you found will
be in DBT 10.6 SR1.  (We have not yet addressed the other problems that you
brought up.)

However, the MathType importer in general will still be considered
experimental when DBT 10.6 SR1 ships, and will not normally be enabled.

Subject: [duxhelp] Mathtype missing item

I have been testing the use of MathType in British Braille. My initial
reaction if very positive with a big WELL DONE to the software writers! 
However I am attaching a file which is causing problems because one
particular MathType equation gets missed out. It occurs initially in part ii
of the attached. It is consistently missed out wherever it occurs later in
the question!
Other general issues are:
1. In British Mathematics if an expression starts on one line but goes on to
the next as well a dot 5 is placed at the end of the first line, tagged on
to the last braille item.
2. In a  fraction it is not necessary to add the additional brackets around
either the numerator or demominator if it is only one term (ie if there is
no space in the expression)

Most of the other issues I have spotted lie around the use of letter signs
and I need to investigate a little more, and check my understanding of the
British Braille code!
I would like to add that the ability to deal directly with expressions in
MathType in Word is a big step forward in making the software easier to use
and more functional. Thank you for tackling this issue.
