Issue 2627: Title and indexing

St Andrew's Fair (Dance)

The general practice in SCDDB seems to be to write titles with “St,” or “Saint” as “Saint”, and to have “saint” used to search for them; but this dance currently seems out of line and a search using “saint” does not find it. You may wish to bring it into line.

Actually the database policy is generally to use the spelling in the original instructions or publications. I believe there is an intention to handle the St/St./Saint variations better in searches in future. But for the moment I added a “spelling alias” for this dance.
