As written on the mentioned site, the X server of the X.Org Foundation
is called Xorg (for example see
http://freedesktop.org/~xorg/X11R6.7.0/doc/RELNOTES3.html#4 or one of
my mail posted in august regarding the 5.3 TODO list).
I defined an entity to prevent that confusion. In the FAQ some spelling
are correct some others not. Even some X.Org docs are not consistent on
this point but they do not use "X.org".
