Title formatting

At present the publication reports the title as "Inside Outside".

  • The front and back covers has "Inside-Outside".
  • The title page and spine have "Inside ● Outside".

It seems from Template:PublicationFields:Title that this record's title should be "Inside ● Outside" but I'm suggesting that we use "Inside-Outside" as most people will not enter a • or ● plus the issue on if the bullet or black circle has spaces around it when searching for a title.

We also have the option to ignore the usual rules and to stick with "Inside Outside". PJF uses "Inside Outside" on his web site for example.[1] With the exception of the Corgi edition most publishers have dealt with it by formatting the title as "Inside" over "Outside" which I suspect we should have been entering as "Inside / Outside". --Marc Kupper|talk 19:04, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

I agree that most people would not use the bullet in a search, so I would tend to lean towards the hyphenated version Prof beard 11:31, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
I'm personally in favor of the title as it is now. If we ignore "●", that's how it is on the titlepage. --Willem 18:51, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
