Control over HTML cleaner

Control over HTML cleaner

Short, concise description of the idea
Generating any safe XML with S2 would be nice. XML is case-sensitive

Full description of the idea
The HTML cleaner lowercases all HTML tags; this is proper to convert HTML written with HTML4 in mind and make it valid XHTML, but for arbitrary XML is wrong:

An ordered list of benefits
  • Would allow publishing RDF in S2 ( and tags among others have capitals)
  • Would allow generating other arbitrary XML.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • No issues other than implementation time, since lowercasing can be left enabled by default.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Add parameter to disable lowercasing on a per-layer basis.
  • Add option to the HTML sanitizer to disable the lowercasing.
  • Connect a to b.
