Post–World[edit]

See second-last point. Whether an en dash or a hyphen, it's awkward. Why not just "Post World War II". It's not a compound adjective qualifying a noun; it's a nominal group. Tony (talk) 14:43, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Suggestion[edit]

I proposed on a couple of state history pages basing the infoboxes like this one on template:Region history, for the sake of consistency. Would anybody be opposed to converting this one to something like the following?
