When I was writing JOURNEY INTO IRRELEVANCY, I faced a similiar
problem with Anything-You-Can-Do-I-Can-Do-Better Lad.  What I ended up
doing was futzing with Microsoft Word's AutoCorrect as you type
feature, so that whenever I typed "Anything-y" it would complete the
name for me.

For those few times that I write a review in word instead of composing
it on google, and for those few times when I write a review in word
that encompasses the name of Dave Van Domelen, I have "Dvandom" set to
convert to "Dave Van Domelen", thus preventing me from mispelling his
last name (an "o" keeps trying to sneak in there).

Secrets revealed!  I am too lazy to even cut and paste, or to learn
how to spell things correctly. :- )
