#2550 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Render multiple names

Multiple values for a key are (supposed to be) delimited by semicolons. Where a "name" key has multiple value, the results are ugly. Many people have (incorrectly) applied the approach of mapping for the renderer, resulting in names of the forms "a (b)", "c - d", "e / f" etc. This is particularly problematic in the case of "c - d", since it causes confusion with hyphenated names of the form "g-h".

Where the name is "x;y", rather than rendering the name as "x;y", put in something like a newline or some other separator to make the correct form less ugly, and to discourage format proliferation.
