Anyone using Sonlight in HS? Any suggestions how to separate, grade, & record for purposes of transcripts?

My son's History portion of his high school transcript looked like this:
9th grade Medieval, Renaissance and Reformation History (we used Beautiful Feet that year)
10th grade U.S. History (Sonlight)
11th grade 20th Century World History (Sonlight)
12th grade U.S. Govt and Economics (We used Notgrass for that)
For English, our colleges just wanted: "English 9, English 10," etc. on his school transcript.
We did use Sonlight's Brit Lit program for 12th grade. He was able to CLEP out of English Literature at the end of his 12th grade year, b/c that lit program was so thorough. He also CLEP'd out of Analyzing and Interpreting Literature in college and 2 History of Civ courses, thanks to Sonlight.
For my daughter:
9th grade World History (we used Sonlight's one year world history)
10th grade Ancient World History (we used Winter Promise)
11th grade U.S. History (Sonlight)
12th grade will be U.S. Govt. and Economics (required in our state) - Notgrass.

Bible was pretty much a pass/fail class.
I also had a page attached to his transcript that stated the requirements for each subject and the credits earned.

Keep good records so that it's easier to go back later and fill out a transcript (or better yet, keep it updated as you go!). You may want to keep a reading list, a sample paper or two, test scores if you do any tests, and so on. I keep a page for each subject to record either books read, or tests, science labs, whatever I want to keep track of. If you keep a binder with dividers for each subject and just add things as you go, it will be much easier than sitting down senior year and trying to remember that your child did a semester of fine arts in 9th grade and so on.
Sonlight makes it easy to track I think, because their IG is well-organized and you can get booklists etc... from that.
Enjoy, high school discussions are fun! Merry :-)

This link should help. On the SL website, if you scroll all the way to the bottom, under 'help/support' is 'homeschool helps'. There are webinars listed for different topics. I happened to find this one a few weeks ago and thought it was VERY helpful.
