Subject: Re: DocBook: The Definitive Guide upper case writing of attributes

/ Karsten Ohme <widerstand@t-online.de> was heard to say:
| Hello,
| In the DocBook: The Definitive Guide
| http://www.docbook.org/tdg/en/html/docbook.html
| there are some description of attributes, where the letter are in
| upper case.
| E.g. XRefLabel is actually xreflabel. This should be clarified.

This is a holdover from the SGML days when case was insignificant
and CamleCase was used for aesthetic reasons. Over time, I expect
TDG to migrate to all lowercase.

                                        Be seeing you,

Chair, DocBook Technical Committee | anger, and pride; if these were to
                                   | be banished, we should infallibly
                                   | enjoy perpetual peace.--Francesco
