If thinking this way, it would also allow including <address> tags in there. It would be _author's_ personal data. Anything related to his employees would come in the <affiliation> tags. > <digression> > And if it is part of your name, that's because you've legally > changed your name and made it your, um, probably surname. I disagree. It's specified in the document: <author> <firstname>Jorge</firstname> <surname>Godoy</surname> <address><email>firstname.lastname@example.org</email></address> </author> or <author> <firstname>Jorge</firstname> <surname>Godoy</surname> <email>email@example.com</email> </author> that firstname.lastname@example.org is an e-mail address. The tags guarantee that it's an e-mail and not a name. The second alternative is only to forbid filling other address' data. > OK, someone must have done this, can anyone cite a case?

Don't articles come with these data? Or do government allows e-mail addresses in companies names? If it does allow that, why would it forbid using e-mail in people name? > I suppose one compromise would be: > > <author> > <firstname>Norman</firstname> > <surname>Walsh</surname> > <affiliation role="self"> > <address><email>firstname.lastname@example.org</email></address> > </affiliation> > <affiliation role="employer"> > <orgname>Arbortext, Inc.</orgname> > <address><email>email@example.com</email></address> > </affiliation> > </author> > > But it would be nice if this was easier?
