But are the meanings really different?  A name is a name.  Here's a
better example:

  <title>Mary Barton</title>

Here there is genuine ambiguity between the title of a book and the
title of a person.  The name profile schema I mentioned in my last
post uses "prefix" instead.  But even if it didn't, the context would
disambiguate between book/title and nameProfile/title.

Values of beeta will give rise to dom!          John Cowan
