Trees of Dynamic Web Report strip hyphen out from hyphenated names

adrian.davey
It seems that the trees generated in the Dynamic Web Report strip out
any hyphen that exists within the string of a given name (as in
"Jan-Åke") or of a surname (as in "HAMILTON-SMITH").

The hyphen gets replaced with a space.

This only appears to happen in the DWR tree, all instances of the name
within any of the various indexes or tabs of the DWR contain the hyphen
as originally entered in the gramps name editor, and even the mouse-over
display of information includes the hyphen. The search function seems to
find the name either way (entering a hyphen, or entering a space).

Is this by design, or a bug? [I am on Win64, gramps 5.0.1-1]

In some juridictions at least, a hyphen if used is part of the legal
name, but in any case it is extremely confusing for some instances of
the name to appear with spaces, and others with hyphens.

I suggest you file a bug report on this.  This report has a lot of complexity, including portions of the code in python and javascript (for the web browser) and will need an expert to figure out (not my area of expertise).
