In FTM, whether you write "abt" or "about" it is automatically truncated to "Abt." "After", "before", and "between" are truncated to "Aft.", "Bef.", and "Bet."

PAF should recognize these tags as what they are and reproduce it in the web page instead of changing every instance to "in". It's a bug.

I just found a solution. In the imported file GED from FTM all the uncertain tags have a period after them such as "AFT.", "BET.", "BEF.", and "ABT.". I found that if I do a "Global search and replace" and remove the periods after them then the tags will export to a webpage and will be displayed correctly as "after", "before", or "about". "Between" displays as "in" with a forward slash between the two years. This will work but I still would prefer an actual "between" and a dash between the dates.
