OK.

While ARP is not perfect in this regard, it did do an OK job with your
example.

The important literal got turned into:

<xhtml:span xmlns:xhtml="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
xhtml:dir="ltr">Chris Croome's home page</xhtml:span>

(I added the newline).
Notice that the xmlns:xhtml attribute is not in the orignal XML file, at
least not in that location. It is wholly unclear from M&S whether this is
correct or not. It is the intention of the current RDF Core WG to clarify
what is correct behaviour in this case.
