I used spanx too liberally, because it looked nice in the html version 
on my machine, and I didn't realize what it did for the text version. My 
use matched what I'm seeing in some bibxml entries, but you are right 
that it doesn't look right in some of the sequences here.

So I've removed most spanx occurrences in the source.

This is a dilemma. The characters produce appropriate text in html, to 
show his actual name.  The xml2rfc text rendering engine produces this 
silliness and I'm inclined to class it as a bug in the engine.

If there is an established practice for working around that bug, to 
produce the proper characters in html and an 'acceptable' alternative in 
text, please let me know and I'll fix it.
