If yo want my $.02 I usually just lowercase things as I pass by, if I have time. All new files and templates are usually just written in lowercase, but old stuff I do as I fix other things in the same proximity.

The web is expected to pass the Library of Congress in size sometime next year. Given the mass of stuff that's already out there, I doubt that much of it passes for HTML, let alone XHTML. Browsers will have to remain backwardly compatible for the forseeable future.
