Most users would find - as a more intuative bp range separator than ...

In methematics, integer interval notation uses ... So too do some programming languages. However, the use of en dash is used in written works to specify ranges (e.g. dates, page numbers etc). In genomics it is most common that basepair ranges are specified using a hyphen (e.g. samtools faidx chr1:<start>-<end>, blastdbcmd -range <start>-<end>), similar to the en dash used in written works.

It would be good if JBrowse could support both notations.
