_ (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.

‘Lynconien<sis> de speciebus cometarum et figurationibus earum. Ptholomeus in libro qui dicitur Centiloquium tricas et tricarum nomina ponit… stelle cum caudis sunt novem que mundum movent — in regibus et divitibus apparebit. Et hec de cometis breviter distinximus. Trica est ignis sublimatus — qualitas rei future cuius est signum.’
