This too is something that I'll have to discuss with Joe.

Is DBT currently treating "5g" as "5 grams" but "5 g" as a number followed
by an isolated letter?

In British Braille units (apart from pence!) are spaced. Unfortunately print
does vary from say "5g" to "5 g" for 5 grams and, in my view quite
reasonably, DBT treats these differently. Is it reasonable for DBT to cope
with such oddities of the British code? If it does not would it be a good
idea to point this out to users?
