Summary0000142: Lone hyphen messes up index's phrasebook
DescriptionA hyphen by itself (other than the one that follows the section number) will insert a horizontal rule into the phrasebook, so that testing commands do not look like they are from the same file as what they test. Moreover the phrasebook will treat the section heading as a file heading, and the "not for release" as a subheading within. This bug does not happen with hyphens that are next to words, nor with the leading hyphen that follows the section number.

This is more of an issue when dealing with extensions and their testing commands, as the author is not familiar with them.

The convention of using a lone hyphen before "not for release" was created by Writing With Inform, Section 2.9 "Material not for release"
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
