Are we talking about treating that string as a defined format that  
will allow it to be parsed into specific pages, or just as a string?   
This might be outside the scope of hCite, but one use case I had in  
mind requiring specific pages to be parse-able is actually viewing  
those pages online with a link to something like books.google.com or  
amazon.com.  That would be possible if "10-50" can be understood to  
mean "10,11,12,13,....,48,49,50", but not if it's just a string of  
five characters with no defined meaning.
