Section 9(h) in a NutshellTM
Use at your own risk, campers!

9(h)(i) Prior to Early Termination. Before an Early Termination Date is designated for the relevant Transaction:―

(1) Interest on Defaulted Payments. If a party defaults on any payment obligation, it will pay interest on the overdue amount from the original due date to the actual payment date (excluding any relevant Waiting Period), at the Default Rate.
(2) Compensation for Defaulted Deliveries. If a party defaults on any delivery obligation, it will, on demand:
(A) compensate the other party per the relevant Confirmation; and
(B) pay interest on the fair market value of the delivery obligation from the original due date to the actual delivery date (excluding any period to which clause (4) below applies), at the Default Rate. The innocent party will determine the fair market value as of the scheduled delivery date in good faith and a commercially reasonable manner.
(3) Interest on Deferred Payments. If:―
(A) a party does not pay an amount that, but for Section 2(a)(iii), would have been payable, it will, subject to (B) and (C) below, pay interest on demand from the date the amount would otherwise have been payable to the date it actually becomes payable, at the Applicable Deferral Rate;
(B) a payment is deferred under Section 5(d), the party which would otherwise have been required to make it will (as long as no Event of Default or Potential Event of Default exists, pay interest on demand from the original due date to the earlier of the date it is no longer deferred and the date on which the Event of Default or Potential Event of Default occurs, at the Applicable Deferral Rate; or
(C) a party fails (after giving effect to any deferral period set out in (B) above) to make any payment because of an Illegality or a Force Majeure Event it will, as long as the Illegality or Force Majeure Event continues and no Event of Default or Potential Event of Default exists, pay interest on demand from the date the party failed to make the payment (or, if later, the date the payment is no longer deferred) to the earlier of the date on which the Illegality or Force Majeure Event ceases and the date on which an Event of Default or Potential Event of Default occurs to that party (excluding any period in which compensation is due under clause (B) above), at the Applicable Deferral Rate.
(4) Compensation for Deferred Deliveries. If:―
(A) a party does not settle any delivery that, but for Section 2(a)(iii), it would have been required to make; or
(B) a delivery is deferred under Section 5(d); or
(C) a party fails to deliver because of an Illegality or Force Majeure Event when any applicable Waiting Period has expired,
that party will compensate and pay interest to the other party on demand (after such delivery becomes required) as required the relevant Confirmation.

9(h)(ii) Early Termination. Upon an Early Termination Date on a Transaction:―

9(h)(ii)(1) Unpaid Amounts. To determine an Unpaid Amount for that Transaction, interest will accrue on any payment obligation or the fair market value of any delivery obligation from the date the obligation was due to be performed until the Early Termination Date, at the Applicable Close-out Rate.
9(h)(ii)(2) Interest on Early Termination Amounts. If an Early Termination Amount is due it must be paid with interest in the Termination Currency from the Early Termination Date until the date it is paid, at the Applicable Close-out Rate.

9(h)(iii) Interest Calculation. Any interest under this Section will compound daily and be for the actual number of days elapsed.

There is no strict equivalent to Section 9(h) in the 1992 ISDA. But see Section 2(e), which is a half-arsed attempt at the same thing.

Friends of the JC will know that “half-arsed” isn’t always bad, of course — it can be quite good, in fact, characterising as it does the sum total of the JC’s paltry achievements on this barren rock — and in any case it leaves something to the imagination and we all like a little private intellectual space to indulge our whims and fantasies every now and then, don’t we?

Besides, as you may come to see as you step through this monstrosity, going to town on devilish details leads you directly into the “I’m sorry I asked” file.

Are you sorry yet? Well, you did ask.
