A Conversation for Camille Saint-Saens - the Composer

An awkward search!

Hi, Seth!
This may already be too late if the entry is nearly through the editing process, but I thought I'd point it out in case you were able to do something about it.

Because you have carefully used the correct punctuation all through the entry, searching on "Saint-Saens" without the whatsit mark won't actually find your article, so I think people might easily miss it. Is it possible to mention that it's sometimes spelt "Saint-Saens" by people in a hurry, just to catch the search function?

Also, a search on "opera" finds Strauss, Wagner, Mozart, Beethoven, Ravel, Purcell etc. but not Saint-Saens because you don't seem to have used the word opera anywhere in the text - I see that you called his operas "dramatic works". Again, a use of the word "opera" somewhere would mean more chance of the entry being found by interested searchers.
Just a thought!

An awkward search!
