I have started entering alternate names for use in Census Tags that
reflect the name as shown in the Census. These names will only appear
in the Census Tag and I do not want to have the name print as an
alternate name: "He was also known as Angus Gillies" or "Her married
name was Lizzie Gillies".

Rather than adding a - to the Nam-Var or Nam-Marr Tag sentences, I am
thinking of adding Nam-VarNP and Nam-MarrNP Tags with a global - in the

Does anyone else do this and are there any problems?
