Say you're working on a record and have completed most of it, but for some reason don't understand a certain field, (e.g. scribbled or illegible) - what is the best practice for this? Would you put BLANK? or...?
If this is regarding indexing, then (a) there's a category better suited to that, and (b) it'll depend rather highly on the specifics: is the field required or optional? Do the project instructions say anything about what to do with illegible text? FS's generic indexing instructions call for a question mark for a single unreadable character and an asterisk for multiple consecutive unreadable characters, or ctrl-U for an entire field that's unreadable. (I've never been able to figure out how to tell how many characters are unreadable. Often, the whole problem is seeing two characters as one or one character as two.)

Question: DOES that matter, that you raise, RELATE, to "Indexing"?

'Thank You', in advance.
Thanks for your answer! Ah yes -- now that you mentioned that, I remember learning about that. That makes sense!
