Re: [xml-dev] Should one adopt the tag naming convention of anexisting XML vocabulary or create one's own tag naming convention?

Probably the only consistent selection across all tools would be for CamelCase.. underscore and minus would give different results across different tools.

I like to use Textpad because it can select content in vertical rectangle by holding down alt.. this would be a good feature across tools from a developer point of view. Also had regex find and replace which is a developer must. I often use it to get at some particular data quickly. It selects two words separated by underscore but not by -

RegexBuddy makes doing anything with regex very fast and efficient and shortens a lot of my days and works the same way as Textpad so probably a standard of sorts

Oxygen selects two separate words by clicking on the - itself is that an xml specific thing across xml editors?

Find, Replacement, copy and paste are key in a developers tool set. Might as well write your stuff with _ is my reflection from the insight on this post given a more efficient developer is better and - gives you little to no more readability over _ and good tools just don't work the way you might want.

Well then, as others have pointed out, you need to use better tools. It's not something I know about because it's not a problem I've ever had, but if I did, I'd certainly blame my tools, not the vocabulary design.
