The other possibility might be to use an all-lowercase convention.  This 
would of course mean all the examples would need reviewing and the HTML 
changing as needed.

Second thoughts - this might not be a good idea in the case of HTML vs 
XHTML behaviour conparison

This leaves the suggestion of removing the stated convention as being 
the obvious thing to do, and in addition making all the examples (except 
the tables one) use lowercase to accomodate both HTML and XHTML.
