The reason for the removal of the uppercase tags was because the new
XHTML standard required lowercase tags. Since mc still had no support
for case-insensitive match, I decided that mc should do the highlighting
based on the syntax alone without checking the spelling of the tags.
Restoring uppercase HTML tags today would be ridiculous. Maybe using
lowercase tags would the better, but I would prefer a fix that would
allow case-insensitive match in the syntax rules.
