Ashton McAllan marks up her pronouns as:
<span class="p-x-pronoun-nominative">she</span> / <span class="p-x-pronoun-oblique">her</span> / <span class="p-x-pronoun-posessive">hers</span>
Each pronoun is listed individually with it's form allowing parsers and programs to identify them for different uses. Other languages may include different forms of pronoun. This solution is suggested after reading the Wikipedia Personal Pronouns article
gRegor Morrill marks up his pronouns similarly (note corrected spelling of "possessive"):
<p>Pronouns: <span class="p-x-pronoun-nominative">he</span>/ <span class="p-x-pronoun-oblique">him</span>/ <span class="p-x-pronoun-possessive">his</span></p>
<p> I use male pronouns ( <a href="https://nl.wiktionary.org/wiki/hij#Persoonlijk_voornaamwoord" lang="nl" class="u-pronoun">hij</a>, <a href="https://sv.wiktionary.org/wiki/han#Pronomen" lang="sv" class="u-pronoun">han</a>, <a href="https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/he#Pronoun" class="u-pronoun">he</a>, <a href="https://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/er#Personalpronomen" lang="de" class="u-pronoun">er</a> ) but also accept gender-neutral pronouns ( <a href="https://sv.wiktionary.org/wiki/hen#Pronomen" lang="sv" class="u-pronoun">hen</a>, <a href="https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/they#Pronoun" class="u-pronoun">they</a> ). If you are writing about me and are in doubt: ask. </p>
- There is no way Martijn sees himself supporting 4 cases for English (subjective, objective, reflexive, and possessive), 5 cases for German (nominative, accusative, genitive, dative, and possessive), and a possible 13 cases for Finnish in the future. Doubtful anyone else will be doing that either: at least 1 implementation (by Greg V) of English p-x-pronoun-* exists in the wild that only specifies 2 cases.
- Simplifying for human visitors who can instantly get started with my pronoun of choice is seen as more important than catering to theoretical computer parsers.
