I was following the advise here:


Besides explaining the form how a single name should be spelled it also

 "If there are multiple authors or editors, their names must be
  separated by the word "and", surrounded by spaces, not enclosed
  in braces:"

I like the idea in principle BUT I have fought severe fights with
Unicode (I would go that far that 20% of the coding time was fighting
against all kinds of coding troubles).  I would accept a *working* patch
but I will not ask myself for even more unicode trouble (even if I agree
that it would be nice).

Kind regards (and "good morning" to Charles - I'll go to bed now ;-))
