That looks nice, Tobias. Thanks to everyone who commented on this. I think we do similar normalization in the engine for the lookup, but not in the search. You'd know if the NASB on the the live swordweb site allows a word click at one of these locations with a letter suffix and it still produces a result. I'm on my phone right now and can't easily try. Great work everyone!

Is there any other translation out there that uses these special Strong's keys?

I don't think any other uses the NAS lexicons. However, those are not the only "not-Strong's Strong's".  For example, there is the Berean Bible (http://berean.bible) who have produced their own content of this sort.  I am (over)due to re-work my existing BIBdraft, BSBdraft, and lexicon modules with the full, finalized content.  This sort of thing is going to induce me to make per-module Strong's dictionaries possible in Xiphos.

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: https://pasteboard.co/JibMDcW.png
