_ (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.

‘Hic est liber quem edidit Ptholomeus Pludensis in quo continentur 100 verba electissimis sententiis iudiciorum astrorum et est expositio ex comento Haly medici magni. Mundanorum ad hoc et ad illud mutatio celestium corporum mutatione est, et ideo causas rerum rimaturus primo celestia contemplare. Scientia namque astrorum ex te et ex illis est. Dicit Ptholomeus, mundanorum etc, premittens quasi fundamentum totius scientie iudiciorum astrorum… Quod autem dicit Ptholomeus, ex te et ex illis est, significat quod que res futuras prenoscere desiderat… (120r) Verbum alterius translationis. Astrologus non opportet dicere specialiter sed universaliter, ideo dicit hic Ptholomeus quod hoc scientia non est nisi… (133r) Dixerunt Ptholomeus et Hermes quod Lune locus in hora… et hoc expertus fuit multociens — et Deum deprecor ut te diligat. Et perfecta est huius libri translatio tertia die mensis Martii et secunda die mensis Gimedi (!) secundi anno Arabum 530. Explicit Centiloquium Ptholomei cum comento Haly. Deo gracias.’
