Case sensitivity

Hi all,

We decided on case insensitivity for tags and "enums". But it seems to be 
very unusual to do this. See for example this mail: and this 

What do you think about making it case sensitive instead? So it has to be 
<Note> instead of <note> or <NOTE>?

BTW, this probably won't be the last suggestion I have - I just assigned 
David Faure who is on the OASIS Office XML specification board to help me 
implement this spec. He knows a lot about this area, and he can probably 
help us look a bit more like other specifications. I think that's a good 
thing, but I don't know if you would object to any of it. Speak up if you 
do :-)
