Dear All,

I would expect that the library or archival community do have a good 
practice how to "squeeze" a compound name, such as :
"His Majesty Dr. Snoopy Hickup Miller Jr", with respective separators, 
in a machine readable string, that could be used as custom datatype in 
an rdfs:Literal as one instance of Appellation, rather than defining all 
possible name constituents as individual rdf properties.

Could be a MARC string? XML? TEI?

This would be very helpful for our users.
