We're deciding on naming standards for a large project and I wanted to ask
who has been involved with such decisions on projects or who knows of
explicit standards. 

For example, in W3C documents about the schema proposal, I see camelBack
case used with a lower-case first letter for element types, attribute names,
and entity names. In the DTD fragment for XSLT, I see all lower-case with
hyphens separating multi-word names. Is there a W3C standard for this, or
(for research purposes) any standards from anyone else?

(I haven't received any xml-dev postings for several days, so please cc me
via e-mail if replying.)
