And any text munging routine will need to handle embedded punctuation. For example:

  • Hackforth-Jones
I guess the best rule is - an individual knows how they want their name spelt. Use exactly what they give you.

[karlgoethebier]: or no education?
[choroba]: their = his or her
[Discipulus]: anyway once I proposed an automatic font decrease for post below -1, stepping every 5 votes: i'm still thinks it's a good idea but dunno if feasible
[shmem]: ...emulated dual in english
[shmem]: Discipulus: has that been in the CB? or in a PM node proper? for the latter case, can you provide the ID?
[Discipulus]: you seriously can use their in this way in eng?
[Corion]: Meh. $effin_bad_system has an interface breakdown and then loads events in parallel with events overtaking one another instead of being processed sequentially
[shmem]: Discipulus: dunno, but we do all the time ^^
[choroba]: Discipulus I was taught so by a Londoner
[shmem]: Corion: very clear case of missing sequence number
