The authors used the format 'HHMM+DDd.1' or '.2' to distinguish stars having identical format 'HHMM+DDd', SIMBAD use 'HHMM+DDdA' or 'B'.
Some WD have a format 'HHMM+DDdJ'. This letter is not part of the format in SIMBAD, but means the WD is detected in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey.
J2000 formats appeared later.
