I think the error tht you are talking about is generated by onsgmls. XML
is case-sensitive. All the attributes are defined in a DTD. onsgmls
validates against a DTD, and if the attribute isn't a valid attribute in
the DTD (case-sensitive), onsgmls will produce the err msg. onsgmls
doesn't care that only the case of an attribute in wrong.

In Peace,
