Hm, I thought I'd read somewhere that as of HTML 4.01 we were supposed to
make all of our tags and attributes lower case. The closest thing I could
find on the W#C site is this,
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/intro/sgmltut.html#h-3.2.2 and it pretty much
says attribute values are case insensitive...so, I guess you can #FCFCFC to
your heart's content.
