Clearly Different Handwriting

When you transcribe a document, do you make a notation if some of the handwriting appears significantly different from the rest of it? Different handwriting indicates a different person did the writing–at least most of the time. Multiple “authors” could have written on a document at different points in time, had varying levels of knowledge regarding the document’s content, or served different positions in the agency that created or maintained the record. Sometimes that really matters.
