Interesting. I'm sure I've asked about this guideline no less than 3
times in the last few years, and never came across this reply...thanks
for finally giving some feedback on this. Annoying, I have to say, as
it's clearly (IMHO) a shortcoming of the software that turns the page to
braille. Out of interest: what software is it?

Do you mind if I forward you email (and my reply) to the list?
