RE: [xml-dev] Convention versus standard

Hard to answer.  I think it is easy to say it is a best practice given
recommendations by the W3C.  Convention may be a weaker form of a behavior
of adoption with best practice the next stronger form and standard being the
strongest form.   Finding a reliable discriminator for the test is the prize

Is camel case a convention until it is a requirement?

Convention suggests informal adoption.  That may or may not be grassroots
because I'm never quite sure what that means these days either.

Ah, that's a good one Len!

> A convention or best practice 

Is a convention the same thing as a best practice?
