Known limitations and deviations from ISO 4

(Feel free to open an issue/PR)

  • We don't always capitalize the first letter of the first word
  • We try to abbreviate every word
  • We don't remove commas or convert periods to commas
  • The list of words we drop is very small
  • We don't handle punctuation at all
