I think the options are:

1. The inspect tool is modified so as to bypass author names (possibly
taken from an author names
file). In a sense, this defeats the whole purpose of the non-ASCII
check, I guess.

2. Supress all diacritical marks:

  Joaquín M López Muñoz --> Joaquin M Lopez Munoz

3. Encode with HTML entities:

  Joaquín M López Muñoz --> Joaquín M López Muñoz

Whatever approach is agreed upon I'll happily apply asap to

Joaquín M López Muñoz
