I'd prefer <blockquote> replaced by <Q>, while <q> remained the same, i.e.
block level elements uppercase, [equivalent] inline ones lowercase. Perhaps
an uppercase first letter would suffice: <Code> for a full source listing
and <code> for a reference to a function or the like in a <P>.
This case dependent concept is, however, totally unknown to XHTML and any
other W3C standard I know.
