A Conversation for French Music (1870 - 1945)

I think I've found the right place for these comments about the Saint-Saens bio, just in case it hasn't already gone for sub-editing (I made them in the wrong place earlier).
Seth was so careful about the correct spelling that typing plain "Saint-Saens" into the search engine won't find the bio. Would it be worth putting an "often spelt Saint-Saens in English" phrase somewhere, just to catch the search function?
Also, there is no actual use of the word "opera" in the bio, so searching on this won't turn up Saint-Saens either. Again, inserting the word somewhere would make it more likely that people would find the bio by searching as well as by the links.
I speaking as someone who's still fairly new and finding her way around, and I use the search function quite a lot.

Thanks Azara ... I think that can still be added - good idea!

I've slipped in a search friendly misprunt (Saint-Saens) and the word 'opera'. It won't come up until the H2G2 behemoth does its rounds I think. Other than that I've nothing more to add so do with it as you will.
