Comment:

Characters appended to temporary buffer are not specified to be lower-cased.
But comparisons against this buffer seem to be expecting this.

Example: 
"8.2.4.28 Script data double escape start state" -> "U+003E GREATER-THAN SIGN
(>)"

"If the temporary buffer is the string "script", then switch to the script
data double escaped state."


Either addition of characters to temporary buffer must be lower-cased (which,
I think, is not right); or comparisons like in example above must be
case-insensitive.

Please clarify.
