Two comments:

* Even though you can use regular spaces and hyphens, make it a habit to use
hard spaces (\ ) and hard hyphens (\+) when defining an autonumber  this
will prevent the autonumber string from being inappropriately split between
lines when cross-references extract the autonumber string.

* If you allow text to be hyphenated, consider inserting a suppress
code (\_) in front of words you include in the autonumber definition.
