We present a series of examples designed to clarify the formalism of the previous paper. After summarizing this formalism in a prescriptive sense, we run through several examples: first, deriving the embedded defect spectrum for the Weinberg-Salam theory, then discussing several examples designed to illustrate facets of the formalism. We then calculate the embedded defect spectrum for three physical grand unified theories and conclude with a discussion of vortices formed in the superfluid phase transition.
