           Summary: [SER] What does it mean to compare without consideration
                    of case?

In two places, the Serialization recommendation indicates that comparisons of
strings of characters should be performed without regard to case.  In section
7.1,[1] the second paragraph following the numbered list begins, "The HTML
output method MUST recognize the names of HTML elements regardless of case." 
In section 6.1.13, we have "making the comparison without consideration of
casing and leading/trailing spaces" [2]

Two errata have also been issued that use a similar formulation.  Erratum SE.E5
[3] added the phrase "making the comparison without consideration of case and
leading or trailing spaces" to section 7.4.13.  The yet-to-be-published erratum
SE.E14 [4] adds the phrase "if the value of the attribute node actually is
equal to the name of the attribute without regard to case" to section 7.2.
