- Incorrect. W3C's HTML 4.01 Specification defines nothing about it and uses uppercase tags.
- The current draft of HTML 5 specification allows mixed use for the HTML mode (with documents served as text/html).
+ Incorrect. W3C's HTML 4.01 Specification specifically says <a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/about.html#h-1.2.1">element and attribute names are case-insensitive</a>, and uses uppercase tags to differentiate them from attributes. While XML-based XHTML 1.x and XHTML5 require lowercase tags, HTML5 is also case-insensitive.
