[bksvol-discuss] Re: Gustavo's comments are understandable by all according to Gustavo

Jonna,

Omiting Ph.d or M.D from an author's name is not illegal.  I would consider
those items as titles as well.  They are, technically speaking, descriptors
of the author's status and thus are not required.

Seems to me that a better solution would be to omit the comma that usually 
appears before M.D. or Ph.D.  When I think of a title, I think of Mr. or 
Mrs. or Dr.  So, yes, that's definitely a comment that is easily 
misunderstood.  I would think it would be kind of illegal, too, given the 
fact that it's actually part of the author's name.  Seems like the complete 
name of the author would be equally as important as the copyright name, the 
inclusion of page breaks, etc.  Anyway, just my 2 cents' worth! <Smile>
