_ (the underscore) is the placeholder for exactly one character.
% (the percent sign) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character.
%% (two percent signs) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character, but not for blank space (so that a search ends at word boundaries).

At the beginning and at the end, these placeholders are superfluous.

‘<I>nter utiliores vias quas in editionibus viderimus sapientum de astrorum doctrinantium influxibus processus quem gloriosus astronomorum ille signifer Ptholomeus Saludranus in libro quartuo (!) partium ordinavit… Due sunt scientie ad pronosticationes complementum requesite secundum quod duobus modis — (162rb) ad varietatem colorum prout sepe dictum est. Et hec sunt in summa sententie domini Ptholomei de rebus et accidentibus universalibus ex secundo eius libro collecte. Verum quia dominus Hali in fine capituli addit certa verba utilia domini Hermetis in libro suo de accidentibus, scripta et michi visum fuerit (?) utile eadem hic subscribere. Dixit Hermes: Ordina significatores primo etc. etc. Primo fortiorem postmodum debiliorem — Hic enim adiunximus multa de dictis Hermetis de quibus proficies si Deus voluerit. Explicit secundus Quadripartiti Pthololomei.’
