Do I have to capitalize GET/POST?
I've been typing GET and POST in lowercase, but when I did the code challenge, it wouldn't let me move forward with until I capitalized my "get".
Is this a style thing or a best practice?
Both methods (GET/POST) is based on HTTP protocol headers property name, as you know: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/XMLHttpRequest#open() http://www.w3.org/TR/XMLHttpRequest/#the-open()-method
So, we should use uppercase just to avoid implementation flaws in JS. And we should keep the XHTML standards too and make it lowercase in HTML forms.
It's just two different standards.
