I'm currently working with a database that has a table of composers. The
data's quite granular and gives:

- personal title (can be sir or just mr, ms, etc)
- first name
- middle_name_1
- middle_name_2
- middle_name_3
- last_name_prefix (von, de los, van der)
- last_name

So my questions are:

1. can I just use <span class="additional-name">middle_name_1 middle_name_2

The closest thing I've seen is the andrew andrew example here:

Or should I use:
<span class="additional-name">middle_name_1</span>
<span class="additional-name">middle_name_2</span>
<span class="additional-name">middle_name_3</span>

As suggested here:
<snip>additional-name's (as found in document order)</snip>

2. is it ok to use plain old mr and ms in honorific-prefix. It's not very
honorific but:
Suggests that's fine

3. Should I just collapse last_name_prefix and last_name into:
<span class="family-name">last_name_prefix last_name</span>
There doesn't seem to be a way of marking up last_name_prefix separately

Thanks for your help
