Hello all,

     I am spending today studying the documentation on the Crosswire 
Sword wiki so I'm likely to have a few questions. Please let me know if 
this is not the right forum to ask questions.

     I see in http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/DevTools:SWORD that 
localised book names are not allowed hyphens in them (because the hyphen 
is used for verse ranges). In the Philippine language that we worked 
with as Bible translators, the hyphen is a letter in the alphabet and 
appears in several book names!

     Is this still a current limitation? If so, what is the suggested
