|Summary||0000238: Restrictions on initials in extension author names are not clear from WI 25.3|
|Description||Inform currently disallows initials in extension author names because they introduce a full stop. This limitation is not documented, though WI 25.3 does list other restrictions.|
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
New Extension by "John X. Doe" begins here.
New Extension ends here.
|Additional Information||It'd be nice to see the limitation lifted and the documentation unchanged, especially because it would make the rules governing story author names and extension author names more consistent, but I realize that there's probably a technical reason that Inform behaves as it does.|
