"People who create web forms, databases, or ontologies are often unaware how
different people’s names can be in other countries. They build their forms or
databases in a way that assumes too much on the part of foreign users. This
article will first introduce you to some of the different styles used for
personal names, and then some of the possible implications for handling those
on the Web."

Share and enjoy,
