Braille Translator note.

Hi MIF, the word "it", as in "Gotta love it" in grade II braille 1.41 translator works fine and converts to the "X" symbol.  If you put ONE exclamation point after the it such as "it!", it still translates to the "X".  But if you put 2 or more exclamation points after the "it", as in "Gotta love it!!!!", then in grade II
Braille, the it remains "it", and doesn't convert to the "X".

Also the space character, when printed out with hollow circles, will not appear at the end of a line, which is no big deal, since the newline is present anyway for the next word.

But still I am enjoying the translator and I know someone who might make use of it.  She teaches a blind student at a college...
