Hello ,

I noticed that I have ACTION-2525

Add an item to the F1.1 errata that allows case insensitivity for the
'RGB' value when painting

I have checked in a draft erratum that fixes this which is trivial.
The erratum is marked as draft.

If its ok, and can be agreed on Wednesday, please assign me an action
to bump it to proposed and to add the change to the 1.1 Second Edition
document.

Here is the description, the resolution, and the changed text (trimmed
to the smallest part that actually changed):

description:

  CSS2, the origin of the rgb() functional notation, allows this to be
  case insensitive. Implementations allow it to be case insensitive in
  stylesheets, but vary in what they allow for presentation attributes
  (lowercase only, lower or upper case, mixed case ...).

resolution:

  For consistency with implementations and deployed content, the
  functional notation was made case insensitive; and for maximal
  compatibility with existing implementations, the lowercase form
  rgb() is preferred.

change from:

    The format of an RGB value in the
    functional notation is 'rgb(' followed by a comma-separated
    list of three numerical values (either three integer values
    or three percentage values) followed by ')'. 

change to:

   The format of an RGB value in the functional notation 
   is an RGB start-function followed by a comma-separated
   list of three numerical values (either three integer values
   or three percentage values) followed by ')'. 
   An RGB start-function is the case-insensitive string 'rgb('
   - so for example  'RGB(' or 'rGb('.
   For compatibility, the all-lowercase form 'rgb(' is preferred.
