JATS Publishing DTD allows for the string-name element to be combined with the mixed content element mixed-citation so that citation authors can be encoded in the article XML in exactly the same way as they appear in the printed copy. You would think if this is so for the citation authors, the article authors ought to support at least this level of flexibility. Yet, string-name is not allowed under contrib in the Publishing DTD version, which is a handicap for those publishers who wish to treat citation authors and article authors alike and preserve rendering order and form in both cases.

In the publishing Tag Set, the element <contrib> will be allowed to contain either <name> or <string-name>, as <contrib> can do currently in Archiving.
