Version 1.2.3 of PageKicker fixes a bug whereby in the Acronyms section the ebook builder interpreted acronyms beginning with the # character s markdown, thus causing hashtag acronyms to create new section headings.

Thus #NotMyPresident. produced:


now becomes:


The trailing period in #NotMyPresident is an error in the acronym filter, although it is not immediately apparent to me how the filter would know to remove the period from acronyms appearing at the end of a sentence.

The current acronym filter is a regex that could be dramatically improved.

sed 's/[[:space:]]\+/\n/g' $txtinfile  | sort -u |\
 egrep '[[:upper:]].*[[:upper:]]' | sed 's/[\(\),]//g' | uniq

Contributions very welcome!
