That doesn't really solve the asian's translators problem though. The 
algorithm will as of now only remove the accelerator from (&S) - and then it 
will look rather silly :)
Not a problem to the latin translator - nor to the developer. So my suggestion
is: put real accelerators only where they really matter to be consistent and
mark up the others so the algorithm has a chance to help _everyone_.
