Text or typed input that is sensitive to capitalization of letters. For example, “Computer” and “computer” are two different words because the “C” is uppercase in the first example and lowercase in the second example. Anything that is not case-sensitive means that any uppercase or lowercase character can be entered.
Attributes are part of XML elements. An element can have multiple unique attributes. Attribute gives c349c information about XML elements. To be c349c precise, they define properties of elements. An XML attribute is always a name-value pair.
While WSDL is case sensitive, programming language bindings will need to map WSDL names to case insensitive program identifiers (e.g. in Visual Basic I believe), or they may case mangle them so that the generated identifiers conform to the programming language’s style conventions.
There are nine basic rules for building good XML:
- All XML must have a root element.
- All tags must be closed.
- All tags must be properly nested.
- Tag names have strict limits.
- Tag names are case sensitive.
- Tag names cannot contain spaces.
- Attribute values must appear within quotes (“”).
- White space is preserved.
