Well, If for whatever reasons a document have:

<person name="Juan José Pablos Castañeda" email=""/>

The html output format should have that informatino as well.

For ASF sites this patch does not stop you to do this:

<person name="Juan José Pablos Castañeda" email=""/>

But that should be changed in the source of the document, I think that 
we should display whatever comes from the source.

Let me know what you think.
