    Dieter Weiss and Peter Wei may each consider
    that there is only one way to correctly spell
    their respective names. Despite normative German
    orthography, Peter may not prefer to be
    uppercased as PETER WEISS; he may in fact
    consider it an error. We cannot do anything about
    normative German orthography, because it is not
    in our remit. But we should not deny Peter the
    character he needs to write his name.
