Hi,

Thanks for Org-mode. This is really THE software I needed! I LOVE everything about it! This is the only piece of software I know of that really designed by users for users, with users & efficiency in mind!

I'm using GNU Emacs 26.3, with built-in org 9.1.9.

When I try to automatically insert Structure Templates (e.g. by typing C-c C-, s), I get everything inserted in lowercase (e.g. #+begin_src).

In ALL the documentation pages I read, the snippets are written in uppercase (i.e. #+BEGIN_SRC, like in the main documentation for this feature: https://orgmode.org/org.html#Structure-Templates). I would myself prefer to have the templates inserted in uppercase, as it allows to clearly & visually differentiate between my main document text and the specific instructions for Org.

First question: why isn't the default as in the docs?

Second question: I couldn't find any configuration variable or function to change the default behaviour. Is there a way to do so?

Thanks!

Because it is ugly for the majority of expressed opinion, and
fontification is a more appropriate way to distinguish between contents
and syntax.

The reason why the manual still uses uppercase is explained at (info
"(org) Conventions").

You can customize `org-structure-template-alist'. I don't remember if
that's possible in Org 9.1.9, tho.

I think the default moved slowly to lower case. The docs
have stayed as-is. Guessing by the mailing lists, this does
confuse people from time to time.

See the (customizable) variable `org-structure-template-alist'.

Cheers

But you cannot change the case of the begin/end that way, so it would be entered
in mixed case:

#+begin_SRC ...
..
#+end_SRC

(I think - but I have not tested.)
