```| 3) axiom.bib.tex file contains 10 file names with unescaped underscores

```  For problem (3), I'm awaiting for input from others.
```
```
```
The drastic way... Remove axiom.bib.pamphlet (from which probably axiom.bib.tex was generated). That is not really a .bib file. It is a collection of filenames. And I would rather see that the translated documentation has hyperlinks instead of references to a "bibliography" that consists of filenames.
```
```
If someone thinks that axiom.bib.pamphlet is a file in good LP style, I have not understood what LP means.
```
```
Underscores would be no problem at all if filenames where properly tagged. Note that there is a latex package called url
```(/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/misc/url.sty)
```
which provides a \path command. Together with hyperref one can turn that also into hyperlinks.
```
(I don't like underscores. They cause problems in many places.)
