I don't have experience with using span tags in conjunction with the
HTMLPlugin, but the Greenstone tutorials say that you can next <meta>
elements in the <head> element and configure the HTMLPlugin to extract
those. The disadvantage is that you can't add this in just any locations
within the body of the document, they really go into the head section in

The sample document boleyn.html that the tutorial refers to, for
instance contains elements like:

<meta name="author" content="Marilee Mongello">

The tutorial then explains how to configure the HTMLPlugin to grab the
values for it.

You may want to do something similar for person and place:
<meta name="person" content="Tom Jones">
<meta name="place" content="UK">

Something to try out is assigning meta for multiple persons or places
for a single document, and checking whether they all get extracted by
the plugin.
