    1. Re: [WA-CEM] {not a subscriber} abbreviations
    2. Hi, I'd rather not have any more rules and stuff than we already have. All I ask is that whatever abbreviations you use, that they make sense to the average person and that you provide a key at the top of your file. Maggie has some abbreviations that she has found useful in her numerous transcriptions, but there is no reason to make any one system mandatory, as long as the reader can easily understand what is presented.
