Well, if you fork out $$$ for a web development tool (I use Microsoft
Visual InterDev), it highlights the HTML tags for you. But obviously that
isn't an option for everyone.

Personally, I prefer lower case because it is easier to code, especially if
you have RSI-related problems which are due mainly to the repeated use of
the shift / control keys (like me!).

I think you'll find it's six of one and half a dozen of the other, so you'd
really want to maintain case-*in*sensitivity.
