someone that knows better should comment but I suspect this is a temporary hack to stop 
the problem you may have noticed in other postings so the abbreviation have been 
converted into upper case Latin.

the problem was messages popping up with this:
     Book: Genesis does not have  a maching toupper abbrevs entry! book number returned 
was: -1

it's only a problem if this stops book abbreviations from working
