The inconsistencies regarding the 'media' attribute in HTML4 are probably of
interest to this group.  See my post on www-html [1].

In short, HTML4 is inconsistent regarding the media attribute two ways:

 1. case-sensitive vs. case-insensitive media types
 2. default value of 'screen' vs. default value of 'all'

My proposed resolution of inconsistencies:

 1. case-insensitive media types
 2. default value of 'all'

Thanks,

Tantek
