Use rel=author in Citoid
Open, LowPublic

Description (Citoid query) fails to detect the author, even though the author name appears as a link with rel="author".

While rel="author" doesn't necessarily guarantee that the link text will be the author name, it seems like a reasonably safe bet.

I agree it seems a safe bet, although zotero (who we're using for all the scraping now) is a little more cautious about using metadata that appears in the body (as opposed to head), unless there's a custom built translator for it, because you can't guarantee the metadata points to the article itself and not something else on the page, like a comment for example.

If this is a popular site in czech it might make sense to build a translator for it specifically.
