>Nope. The web isn't a Microsoft product, and the technology was developed mainly using mainframes and UNIX-type systems. Since Windows is case insensitive, IIS will treat Index.html and index.html as the same file, but this has nothing to do with the http protocol. Apache relies on the filesystem so on Windows I believe Apache is case insensitive.
That would make sense. IIS is not very used on the web, apache is. But apache mostly on windows, I am affraid, although I don't know why anybody would use a windows server instead a linux server to run apache.
Although I think that case-sensitivity is a good thing in linux, on the web I don't think so, since you encounter many users that believe (not just out of using windows) that "Table" and "table" is not a completely different object whatsoever.
Thanks for the pointer, I will investigate into this module to make my apache "dumb down" for average websurfers (which will not be my primary public anyway ;-)
