Javascript Pet Peeves

For some reason people when writing javascript always seem to do 2 things that just drive me nuts!

One they camel case some html attributes like onChange , onClick .onMouseOver all html elements and attributes should be in lowercase

And they prepend their function with javascript: which is only useful in very few cases

So you get this awful monstrosity that looks like onClick="javascript:doSomething()" when the proper way is to write it onclick="doSomething()"

I'll agree that it isn't a huge deal in most cases but there is a right and wrong way to do somethings and wish people would do it the right way, oh well I guess thats why they call it a Pet Peeve.
