Ok thanks.

The UUID spec (RFC 4122) allows both upper and lower case hex digits, so I don't see a reason not to.

Personally I find lower-case much easier to read because I find the lower-case letters visually more different from the digits than the upper case letters.  For these two reasons I prefer lower-case.   I haven't always been this way.  I used to prefer upper case because I think the upper case letters look neater, having the same height as the digits.  But now I prefer legibility over neatness.
