[OS X TeX] Junior in BibDesk preview

In BibDesk help, on the page entitled 2. BibTeX Intro, in the  
Formatting Names section it says
<quote>

BibTeX also handles more complicated names. Prefixes to given names  
such as 'van' or 'van den' and suffixes such as 'Jr.' or 'III' are OK:

"van den Huevel, Johan A, Jr."

</quote>

However when I enter "van den Huevel, Johan A, Jr." in the author  
field and preview the reference I get:

[1] J. van den Huevel, Johan A. Title of Book. Name of Publisher, 1975.

On page 767 of the LaTeX Companion 2nd Edition the following format  
is used:

"van den Huevel, Jr., Johan A"

and indeed that previews in BibDesk as:

[1] J. A. van den Huevel, Jr. Title of Book. Name of Publisher, 1975.

Should the BibDesk Help page be changed, or am I (once again) missing  
something obvious?
