           Summary: Case insensitivity of @rel vs case sensitivity of URIs
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org

Under the RDF extraction procedure
<http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/microdata.html#rdf> any tokens in @rel are
converted to lower-case. This includes instances where URIs have been used as
tokens. Many RDF properties include some upper-case characters, including the
commonly used http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#seeAlso property.

Possible solutions include:

* Require (or at least permit) extractors to consider tokens containing colons
case-sensitively; or

* Document the limitation.
