Hi.

  I read all of the Upper vs Lower tread. I understand that we
all have our habits: mine was to capitalize only the first letters
of my tags (I feel alone) until I heard of XHTML. I decided then
to write my pages conforming to xHTML and I'm proud of it. Were'nt
you all, HTML (hand)writers proud to use the brand new (& clean) HTML4
spec while the web was stuck in NS or M$ or whoknows proprietary version
of pourly coded 3.2?

  what i mean is: Is that so difficult to start using tomorrow's tools,
thinking that they're understood by today's agent and that one of
their purpose is to avoid the garbage of the past?

  Do you know why I decided to switch to xHTML? Just because of this
sentence: "the document has to be well formed". I think it worths a
loss of capitalization.


  Xave.
