Hi,

I don't know whether this is the correct list for this question, so 
please forgive me if it isn't.

My question concerns the CSS2.1 Candidate Recommendation 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/) and specifically Conventions 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/about.html#q4). 

Why does it say "Document language element names are in uppercase 
letters." ?

Surely for XHTML the document language element names /must/ be in 
lowercase.  Elsewhere in the document, lowercase is used for both HTML 
and XHTML (e.g. http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/intro.html#q1)  In the 
section on case (http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#q6), it says 
"Note in particular that element names are case-insensitive in HTML, but 
case-sensitive in XML."

This suggests to me that the Conventions section is misleading and 
should be changed, especially because XHTML and SVG use lowercase 
element names.  Do you agree?

Rick
