This issue has been discussed before in other venues, and XSLT and 
XSL FOs use lowercase-with-hyphens and XHTML uses lowercase.  The
common formatting properties (shared by CSS and XSL and perhaps SVG)
use lowercase or lowercase-with-hyphens.  That is, most of the more
recent ("forward looking"?) W3C standards have stayed away from camelCase.
