    There are disabled rules that place the author's first name before the last name. Use these rules if you are certain of the format of the author's name.
    If there is a comma, then take all the text after the comma and add it before the text that precedes the comma, deleting the comma itself.
    For example:
    Lippe, Ole von der --> Ole von der Lippe
    Van Der Wise, Fred --> Fred Van Der Wise
