I know. I forgot to say that I'm working out the braille table from an
UNESCO document, which does not cover everything. But it should be a

braille. Sometimes the document says which ones, sometimes not, and I
don't know the matter enough for deciding what should be done, so I left
it as comment.

Ok. It looks like in the document I have they turned the 'e' letter in
the wrong direction (upside down instead of turning it 180°).

Ok, it shouldn't be a problem.
