... Can you possibly change "Saint" to "St." in your database with regard to Saint Helena?

I know some places are known by Saint as much as St., but TP is more or less the only place i've ever seen it with Saint in full (nowhere on the Island is it like that).

((perhaps on a more wide spread thought, can you make all "St." and "Saint" interchangeable and picking up both in searches/tagging etc? Some people won't think to try one of the other doesn't work - It took me a while to realise that i had to use Saint for SH, and i doubt i'm the only one who may be confused by your use of perhaps the more technically correct but rarely used version))

This is really a consistency thing more than anything else. We write it out in full for all the islands starting in 'Saint', so if we change one, they all have to change. That's not really a job to cherish, as there's any number of little things all over the place that can break because of it. But it would indeed be nice if the search system recognized the two as being the same!
