Issue

Hi,

Why the MAC address values are always using caps letters?
<xs:pattern value="[\d,A-F]{2}\-[\d,A-F]{2}\-[\d,A-F]{2}\-[\d,A-F]{2}\-[\d,A-F]{2}\-[\d,A-F]{2}"/>

even MAC address with small letters are valid.

Proposal

Discussion Created Status
The restriction to capital letters for hexadecimal address related numbers is defined in IEC 61850-8-1. 02 Nov 12 Not Applicable
