To replace hyphen with non-breaking hyphen

Hi

I try to set up a regex for French language.

We have some acronyms linked with hyphens 8208 like
J.-C, P.-D.G. (and the list can grow) They are always unhappily hyphenated and it would be much better if they were not. That's why I would like to replace their hyphens with non-breaking hyphens 8209
I do not know how to set up this regex. Ideally, I would like to be able to just add easily one new word.

I think there must be better than this.
I wrote only 8208 instead of the full &#...:

Search: (J.|P.)8208(C.|D.G)
Replace: \18209\2
