Thanks once more! I've found a way to handle these special Strong's 
while still being able to use them for dictionaries with the standard 
keys. This is how:

1) When looking up an entry in a dictionary, first try to use the "raw 
key" (like G5179b)

2) If the dictionary does not have that key, try with a "normalized key" 
(in this case G5179)

This way the special Strong's from NASB for example can still be used to 
lookup "normalized entries" from other Strong's keyed dictionaries.

This is how my dictionary info box looks like now: 

Best regards,
