So for example I currently do this for the following items
page names - this-is-a-frog.php
classes and ID's - .this-is-a-frog
downloads - This_is_a_Frog.pdf
Does anyone have any insight into this please.

lowercase all class, IDs & file names & use dashes as a delimiter
The reason for using lowercase:
- Lowercase your file names as a general rule, because nearly all production web servers are Linux and Linux is case-sensative for file names
- HTML is also case-sensative
The reason for using dashes in IDs & class names:
- It's largely the convention
- Google's HTML & CSS Style Guide concurs
Cool thanks for this James
