After a first read through of RFC2854 i reacted "instinctively" on the
following line in...

  5. Recognizing HTML files
     ...
     These dialects are case insensitive.
     ...

My experience is that referring to SGML applications as being "case
insensitive" has been the root of quite a bit of confusion over the
years.

The real concept "case folding" so IMO it might be better if the text
referred to that instead. Possibly also mention, at least briefly, that
the entries for LCNMCHAR and UCNMCHAR in an SGML declaration for HTML
has an effect on the final result of a case folding process.

Further explanation and details from here...
