I believe it depends on the SGML declaration. See the (normalize string)
function which is in the modular stylesheets :

(define (normalize str)
  ;; REFENTRY normalize
  ;; PURP Normalize the str according to the SGML declaration in effect
  ;; DESC
  ;; Performs SGML general name normalization on the string;
  ;; used to compare attribute names and generic identifiers correctly
  ;; according to the SGML declaration in effect; this is necessary
  ;; since XML is case-sensitive but the reference concrete syntax and
  ;; many SGML DTDs are not.
  ;; /DESC

  (if (string? str)
      (general-name-normalize str
