This is nice eye candy, but I have a strong suggestion for all. Please DO NOT create any
materials whether graphics, documents, books, articles, software or otherwise that furthers
the confusion about XML declarations. Section 2.8 of the XML spec is clear that the
declaration is lower case, i.e. <?xml version="1.0"?>

While the graphics are not XML declarations, they do imply that one should use an uppercase
XML as the root element of a document. This may confuse new users who would be tempted to do
<?XML version="1.0"?>

Am I anal retentive? Yes I am. And so is XML when it comes to syntax. This very thing also
causes problems for new users of XML who are used to forgiving HTML parsers.
