I think you'll need to dig a little deeper in your memory. This is what the
Pearson site
says for that:

I checked UEB and it is similar. From

Sam knows Nemeth vastly better than I do, so when he says that there are
cases where Nemeth's general philosophy toward his math braille don't
apply, there are examples. I'd definitely like to know what they are so
they can be noted in whatever write up we do about MathML and braille.
