The participants in the WG represent both corporate and independent
content developers, e.g. the WG includes participants from the
Hypertext Writers Guild. Arguments have been presented for upper and
for lower case, and the working group eventually reached a consensus
position on recommending lower case to W3C members for adoption for
use in the reformulation of HTML in XML. This was covered in the
public draft issued in early December, last year. The group is now
moving forward to tackle issues of modularisation and document
profiles, as detailed in the HTML Activity statement, see:
