Because no one changed them to lower case yet.

As far as I can tell, indentation generally follows the individual editors' and translators' tastes.  They are after all the only people who look at the source code on a regular basis.  I see no reason to change this only to suit aesthetically minded visitors who happens to browser our site by HTML source code - how likely a situation is that?

Personally I have no trouble locating the individual languages in the list.  Besides, language selection is done automatically for most people using content negotiation.

I'm not aware of any cross-language grammar rule convering this situation (or any situation, for that matter).

Our solution to the problem seems like a reasonable compromise.  If the listed languages were all in upper or lower case, I'm certain someone else would complain, as you can't satisfy everyone.

Please have patience, all this is done in our spare time as a hobby.  People have lives outside Debian, believe it or not. :-)

We're glad to have your assistance.

I have no comments on the points you make on correctness of code; we do care about it and it will probably be fixed if a knowledgeable person looks into it agrees with your conclusions.

All of the above is only my take on it; we are many people working on Debian's web site...
