So, I guess I'm the culprit as I'm the one that made this change,
copying information from the XML Schema documents.  Sorry.

As this was in one of the references, there is no wonder that people
couldn't find problems in the document sources.  Sorry again.

Works for me, although it would be nice to use his true Chinese name in
our documents, particularly as it works OK in the HTML versions.

One way to go would be to strip the characters out before PDF
generation, but I don't think that this is worth it and certainly not
for this round.
