Hi Paul,

1) At the point in 3.3 where namespace prefixes are said to be case- 
insensitive, we'd like it pointed out (a) why this is so and (b) that  
even though XML documents have case-sensitive prefixes, there is no  
conflict, because the prefixes in the CSS need not be identical with  
those in the XML. (We realize you make this point later.)

There is no conflict with XML Namespace indeed, but the case  
insentivity seems to make it impossible to style element with two  
similar prefix and different case.
