Subject: Re: [docbook-tc] fonts.

Hi Dave,

For the braille parts themselves, the phrase markup as you mention it seems like a good idea.

For the surrounding text, I'd recommend enclosing each combination of standard English/Braille transcription within an InformalExample element. I didn't see any completely inline usage of Braille, so that should work. Otherwise, I found it a bit confusing to distinguish them in the Word document (even though I read some Braille).  Then you could use whatever enclosing tagging you need (e.g. para, InformalTable, SegmentedList, SimpleList,  etc.) within the InformalExample to contain the Braille phrases

I'm looking at converting a Word file into docbook.

The word file contains 'black dot' braille,
a font which translates ASCII characters into
a pattern in a 6 dot cell.

Suggestions for markup please?
phrase class='braille-font'?

It is actually at block level (you don't get many
braille cells to a line), but
<para><phrase>  seems the best I can come up with.
shows an example.
