Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: RFE 480957: Proposal: Improve name and address markup

/ Peter Eisentraut <peter_e@gmx.net> was heard to say:

I've always thought this markup was reasonably neutral culturally. Can
you provide some examples where this is not the case?

I would hope, in the worst case, that

  <personname><othername>the culturally different name</othername></personname>

would be acceptable.

                                        Be seeing you,
