Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Complex parameters.

Actually, the stylesheets do have provision for localizing personal name 
layout.  Initially it was using a role attribute on the personname element, 
as described here:


You can specify three alternative styles:

Since then, the style designation was added to the locale files in the 
element l:context name="styles" using the template name="person-name", with 
a default value for English of "first-last".

All of these can be customized or extended in the template named 
"person.name" in common/common.xsl.
