HTML 4.01 = case-sensitive CSS

2007-09-18 @ 15:36#

was *reminded* today (by Eric Meyer) that HTML 4.01 DOCTYPE standards mode makes CSS class and id case-sensitive. thought for sure that this was only true if you used XHTML DOCTYPEs and/or had an XML declaration at the top of the page. but noooo....

we have a major upgrade to HTML 4.01 DOCTYPE this week for an app where i'm working. sorting out the case-sensitive CSS for our own pages will be tedious, but do-able. the big problem is that this app allows our customers to author quite a bit of HTML/CSS/SCRIPT to customize the UI. now *that's* gonna be ugly [sigh]!
