I get it:

To look on the positive side, as long as "somethings" need not be 
hyphenated, everything will be all right. And if, as long as all can 
happen is that "somethings" is going to be mangled, I am sorry but, 
since the book is only going to be on the web under GPL, I will leave it 
to some possible, if actually unlikely, reader to straighten it out. :-D

Grateful regards though.
