Hi Aditya,

this was new to me.

You are right, this did work as expected  but only when you place the
definition of the abbreviation and the \placebookmarks command in the
right order.

The following order in the souce works.

\abbreviation [UK] {UK} {United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern


The problems is, the token register \simplifiedcommands is called by
the \placebookmarks command and every abbreviations, that follows after
the command is ignored.
