I don't mind, but if there is nothing in the blank, braille cannot be
put there by any software.  Also, don't leave out the rest of the
message.  What about my state example?  Also, I have answered
questions about this on the lists.  I am a staunch conservative but
not without reason.  For instance, I never advocated one line per link.

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?
