Since the position of a surname can vary, and since it may be in a script the reader is unfamiliar with, and since some of us are or will be not maintaining SURN and GIVN, …

I propose an admin preference for decoration of the surname. Choices might include bold, italic, underscore, font color, none.

Surnames are already given special HTML markup.

e.g. "Wes /Groleau/" will be rendered as
<span class="NAME">Wes <span class="SURN">Groleau</span></span>

So, you can easily add styling to surnames using CSS.
.SURN {  font-variant: small-caps }
