DOM: why does "tagName" return uppercase?


Recommended Posts

Hi,Why does the HTML DOM property "tagName" return the tag names in uppercase? The w3c recommends to use lower case within HTML documents... so why not returning the names as they are? thx!Felixfrom the specification:http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-DOM-Level-1-...l-one-html.html2.5.3. Exposing Element Type Names (tagName)The element type names exposed through a property are in uppercase. For example, the body element type name is exposed through the "tagName" property as "BODY".
