Good point Andy. I agree. I tend to think that Design #3 should be
considered Best Practice.
A thought occurred to me with regards to the Design #3 approach. Can I
add information that didn't exist in the original HTML text?
Suppose that this is the original HTML text:
John will be our speaker. Mr. Public will talk about ...
And here is how I mark it up (using Design #3):
<abbr class="fn" title="Mr. John Q. Public, Esq.">John</abbr>
will be our speaker. Mr. Public will talk about ...
Notice that I added information that was not in the original HTML text,
namely, his middle initial and his suffix.
Is this reasonable? legal? good practice? best practice? terrible

A "pro" for #3 is that users can tell who John is on the first mention
and, subsequently, the he's not the John Smith referred to elsewhere.
