Section 4.1.2 of "XHTML 1.0: The Extensible HyperText Markup Language" at
http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-html-in-xml states: "XHTML documents must use lower
case for all HTML element and attribute names."

Tradition suggests that all HTML element and attribute names should be in
upper case. Look at any book on HTML, say, "Cascading Style Sheets" by Hakon
Wium Lie and Bert Bos.

Following the lead of tradition, Section 4.1.2 should read "XHTML documents
must use upper case for all HTML element and attribute names."
