I'm curious about your usage here:  I've not seen attribute names written 
before with the 'commercial at' as a prefix.  I associate this prefix with 
arrays (as in Perl) -- what's the origin of using it for SGML/XML attributes?

I've never been comfortable that I don't know a good way of offsetting XHTML 
attribute names (i.e., lower-case ones) in plain text.
