Today I was looking up some references in Nave's Topical Bible when I was struck by how some verse references are handled. In Nave's (and many other resources) when there are only two verses in the reference, the two verses are usually separated by a comma instead of a dash, like this:

Hebrews 1:1, 2 instead of Hebrews 1:1-2

As a result, I have to hover over each reference individually to see both verses when it often make more sense to see both verses at once. The individual "2" is also a much smaller target, which is simply harder to hit.

It would be helpful if Accordance could recognize such sequential verse references and treat them as a single multi-verse reference. So in the example above, hovering anywhere over the first reference would show both verses in Instant Details instead of just a single verse. (I.e., it would act as if the reference was formatted as the second instance is.)
