§7. Representation of Arabic Numerals:
a. Digits are represented in two ways: as in English Braille, and as in Nemeth Code. The digits in English Braille are represented by the letters "j" and "a" through "i". The digits in the Nemeth Code are represented by the symbols whose configurations correspond to these same letters, but which occupy the lower portion of the braille cell.
b. Even when a work is transcribed in the Nemeth Code, when at all practical or appropriate, all numerals on title pages must be transcribed as in English Braille. Numerals at the corners of pages and at the ends of pageseparation lines must also be transcribed as in English Braille. English Braille numerals must be used when the technique of "keying" (§187) is employed. In all other cases, including contents pages, forewords, page references, footnotes, indices, and bibliographies, the numerals of the Nemeth Code must be used.
§8. Comma, Decimal Point:
a. The transcriber should be alert to the possibility that variant forms of the comma and decimal point are sometimes employed, particularly in books published outside of the United States. Although the ink print signs for the comma and decimal point differ from
those used in the United States, this difference is not reflected in the braille transcription. However, a transcriber's note should be included at the beginning of the book to inform the reader of the continental usage in the inkprint edition.
