   RE: Id vs. ID in SAX

Although ID is widely used, Id is also, and I 
personally find Id acceptable.
I think that the etymology of "ID" is
the first 2 letters of "identification",
which makes it an ordinary abbreviation, not an acronym 
such as URL, HTML, etc.
Or is there some reason to believe it comes from e.g. 
"Identity Document"?

Hopefully helpfully yours,

There is nothing so practical as a good theory.  Comments are by me, 
not Fidelity Investments, its subsidiaries or affiliates.
