Just for clarification, the proper name is "Ælfred" (with an AE
ligature at the start), but that will not come through older mailers;
the ASCII transliteration is "AElfred", but the point of the AE
ligature is that XML is not limited to ASCII (though many people's
e-mail is).  The unimaginative Java class name is
com.microstar.xml.XmlParser, so there's no problem with ligatures

We could type &AElig;lfred, but we'd scare away the Java hackers.

All the best,
