Re: XHTML validation

Thanks for the note. 

The book -- XML by Example says: 

"By convention, HTML elements in XML are always uppercase. "
"By convention XML elements are frequently written in lowercase."

If XHTML validation is going to use lowercase for HTML elements, I can deal with that.  But I'd wish the "convention" was as strict as XML.
