Some IEEE standards contain no capitalization - 802.1s - 802.1w - 802.3ad.
Some IEEE standard contain capitalization - 802.1D - 802.1Q.
Can someone provide some insight concerning when and why capitalization is or is not used. Thanks.
You can have a look at this link:
There is also good explanation of the naming convention in chapter 1 of "The All-New Switch Book: The Complete Guide to LAN Switching Technology" .
Good news is that chapter 1 is freely available on the publishers site. You can find the information you are looking for on page 50.
Your input addressed my concerns. Now I can embrace IEEE standard names more comfortably.
