17.2 Reference Symbols — The Braille Asterisk

In literary braille, all print reference markers are represented by the braille asterisk (dots 3-5, 3-5). A space is left before and after a braille asterisk except when a footnote number or letter follows it in print. When an asterisk is used in braille it must be listed on a special symbols page (to be studied later). Example:

Veterans* Day [or] Veterans† Day [or] Veterans‡ Day
