> Putting aside the ability to specify datatypes, you could always make FIRST and LAST attributes of the respective elements.
> Also, aren't positional names (first, last) too presentational without describing the data? For instance, replace FIRST with GIVEN and LAST with FAMILY. (This might make the DTD more reusable in countries that don't order their names the same as most western countries as well.)
It would be more acceptable to utilize FIRST with GIVEN NAME and LAST with SURNAME.
We found the X.400 naming conventions to be internationally acceptable.
