[bioontology-support] FB-BT widgets return 500 internal server error

If you encode the dash using %2d when placing it into your HTML then we will decode it properly. Unfortunately, this is the only workaround we can manage without redesigning the (admittedly short-sighted) implementation we have.

If you’ve downloaded the javascript, you will need to do so again to get my fix. You also may need to refresh your browser cache.
