Paul Chadwick’s interesting article on honorifics (Open door, 12 November) brought to mind a general irritation. It would be most helpful to those of us with short memories if the first mention of anyone’s name in an article could be highlighted, so that when one comes across an isolated surname further along, it is easier to refer back to the full details. Reading the whole article all over again just to find a name is no pleasure. I hope this can be a consideration in the future.
