Correct me if this is incorrect but as far as I can see, according to
the specs authors have been using, id and name are case-sensitive in
XHTML 1.x just as in HTML 4.01.
Since HTML5 handles standard HTML, tag soup, and faux-XHTML (i.e. almost
all public web content), what is the benefit of introducing a backwards
incompatibility with the XHTML 1.x specifications for the
application/xhtml+xml serialization, in which any content (the "esoteric
cases" Hixie mentioned) correctly relying on case sensitivity would break?
It doesn't really help conversion betweens serializations, since any
conversion process would involve a normalization of text/html id's to
Are there any application/xhtml+xml pages incorrectly relying on case
insensitivity to work?
