Where possible, <markup> tags should be written in
You forgot dromedaryCase and lCFIRSTCASE (these two are handy for languages like prolog or haskell or ruby where the case of the first letter of a word counts as a silgil).
Use single letter tag names, and make them case-sensitive because that allows more choices. If you run out of single letter names, use two-letter names with the case of both letters significant.
Consistent case (i.e., pick a style and use it for all tags consistently).
The moon would crash into the Earth
The moon would breakup at the Roche limit
The wire would turn the Earth into a giant electromagnet
The Earth would turn into a giant yo-yo.
The moon would orbit every ~24 hours, significantly changing the lunar calendar
The centripetal force would rip out the Earth's core
All man-made satellites would be destroyed, causing great havoc
Moon landings would become significantly easier
The rope or wire would break, no matter how strong it was
The Vulcans would show up for First Contact causing yet another revision to the timeline
The Galactic Police would snip the rope and put the Earth on probation
Some idiot would get terrible, terrible, rope burn
We finally get those golf balls back
