lower case attributes in xhtml validator

Idea for improvement:

If the validator encounters an error of the type:

"Error: there is no attribute "onClick" for this element (in this HTML version) "

Would it be possible to add additional code, searching case insensitive through the define elements or 
attributes of the current element, and adding a hint:

"Hint: you may be referring to the attribute "onclick" "

I believe this kind of support would improve acceptance of xhtml validation.

Thanks for your work!
