@rgegriff LOL yeah, why was that? I read one theory was to distinguish HTML tags easier without syntax highlighting:


>Oh, and everyone wrote HTML tags in all caps. I don’t remember why we all thought that was a good idea. Maybe this was before syntax highlighting in text editors was very common (read: I was 12 and using Notepad), and uppercase tags were easier to distinguish from body text.

@swaggboi That is a fantastic article!

I think I agree would agree with that.

And I think it fits in with older programming languages where all the COMPUTERY things were all-caps, and all the human things were human-case. Like in SQL or some basic dialects and stuff.
