ISSUE-62: Case requirements

Case requirements

Raised by:
Richard Ishida
Opened on:
6.2.3 Attribute values

WG Approved: Yes

" however, case requirements do not apply to non-ASCII letters such as Greek, Cyrillic, or non-ASCII Latin letters. "

We are confused by this text. Scripts such as Greek, Cyrillic, and Armenian do have case distinctions, and those distinctions are significant in XML if you have attribute names or values in those scripts. But we are not clear when any characters from those scripts or non-ASCII Latin letters are used for attribute names or values in HTML.

Please clarify for us what the intent is.

(There is similar text in 6.2.2)
