Hi Laurent,

Many thanks for the quick and very useful reply.

We currently have this:

(1)
   <author>Dolben, John, 1625-1686.<idno 
type="EE:BIO">dolbejohn0004746</idno><idno 
type="LCCN">n85143439</idno><idno type="VIAF">66813114</idno></author>

I can see how I could immediately improve on that with the following:

(2)
  <author><persName>Dolben, John, 1625-1686.</persName><idno 
type="EE:BIO">http://dx.doi.org/10.13051/ee:bio/dolbejohn0004746</idno><idno 
type="LCCN">http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/n85143439</idno><idno 
type="VIAF">https://viaf.org/viaf/66813114/</idno></author>

And an alternative might be the following (on the basis that  the 
current prose form is from the Library of Congress Name Authority File, 
and so it might make sense for the LCCN identifier to be more closely 
associated with the contents of the <persName> element):

(3)
   <author><persName 
ref="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/n85143439">Dolben, John, 
1625-1686.</persName><idno 
type="EE:BIO">http://dx.doi.org/10.13051/ee:bio/dolbejohn0004746</idno><idno 
type="VIAF">https://viaf.org/viaf/66813114/</idno></author>


Best wishes,
Martin
