". . .if I donʻt (use an ampersand). . .touchstone does work and SHOWS an ampersand (!)

Does the same thing with something that is in a lot more names and titles than an ampersand: an apostrophe: Example:
Sean OCasey (written w/out apostrophe)

Edited: Aug 26, 2010, 5:43pm Top

Drat! my test didnʻt come through for me ; judgin by what theyʻve done in the past, I was expecting the correct spelling -- in blue-- put through by the INCORRECT spelling. But they do
put it in blue if the apostrophe is left out.

Testing: Sean O Casey

--Okay: what Iʻve noted before isnʻt operating right now.

The first word of your first book must start with the last word of the last book in the previous play. Each play must contain three titles.
