More importantly, several editors make it fairly easy to alter their display
so that, while the file data is stored using lower case elements and
attribute names (and values, where relevant), you see and edit whatever you
want, be it full caps, initial caps or whatever; this is why I really don't
understand this discussion. If you want to look at something in a certain
way, this is entirely feasible.

I'd hope that editors where this isn't a relatively simple issue will get
this sort of functionality as well.

Cheers,
James
