I would not jump to the conclusion that these type of misspellings will result in panda penalties.
I am assuming you have significant content on each page and that you only have a handful of intentional misspellings on the page for the user benefit.
People's names are not in a dictionary and will get caught in a misspelling search. I don't see Google penalizing a website simply for having words that are not in a dictionary.
The thing that delineates proper names/nouns is a capital first letter.No, it's a capital first letter not preceded by a sentence-final period-- as distinct from a period after a title such as Dr., Ms. or Lt.-- or paragraph break. In English, that is. I don't know how careful g### is, but if you can do it yourself with a simple RegEx, you'd think they could do the same.
I've been looking for some kind of mark-up that might work in this situation - making it semantically clear that the content of the element is exceptional.
The u element represents a span of text offset from its surrounding content without conveying any extra emphasis or importance, and for which the conventional typographic presentation is underlining; for example, a span of text in Chinese that is a proper name (a Chinese proper name mark), or span of text that is known to be misspelled.
Changes in HTML5 - Although previous versions of HTML defined the u element only in presentational terms, the element has now been given the specific semantic purpose of representing text “offset from its surrounding content without conveying any extra emphasis or importance, and for which the conventional typographic presentation is underlining”.
Anyone know if this interpretation is followed by G
