I fear I was misunderstood, I reposted my email because
 I wasn't able to find it in the my email folder nor the junk one nor
the list archive.

As a precision the function where I replaced the_author() by 
was the_author_posts_link() ni the author-template.php

I also encoutered yesterday a problem which may be related :
I'm using the Coins-metadata plugin for years and just noticed that 
of post revisions, feeds, ... got the <span class="Z3988"> hardcoded in 
the DB.

I suspect the following scenario having happened, what is not yet 
confirmed :
An user submit a post, in the hook chain the_content() is called, the 
content is
prepended with those metadata which, in theory, must only affect
the displayed text, not the stored one.

related experiences welcomed
