Oh, I confused abl1943 with colb1945.  Was the abl1943 orthography
used only for text that was Brazilian Portuguese in other respects
(word choice, second person singular pronouns, etc.)?

I agree with that.

"The exception proves the rule."  Dimbulbs think: "Your counterexample proves
my theory."  Latin students think "'Probat' means 'tests': the exception puts
the rule to the proof."  But legal historians know it means "Evidence for an
exception is evidence of the existence of a rule in cases not excepted from."
