    Apache runs on Windows and used .htaccess, so the letter case for
    Windows wouldn't matter, but that's a good point about Apache on *nix
    and it should probably always follow the more portable letter case in
    examples (but I think everyone probably understood this in the above
    example, but I could be wrong).

    It is okay, don't mean to rag on you, but sometimes these little details
    can be awfully confusing for newbies.

    Can I safely say that all us Windows users where puzzled the first time
    a webpage locally design "worked" on the hard drive but "lost" images
    when uploaded? (The we discovered the nasty habit of Windows to
    capitalized first letters of file names and file extensions so <img
    src="mypix.jpg"> != "Mypix.JPG")

    Yes apps were particularly guilty of it, but I seem to recall Win95
    "like to" make the first letter of a file uppercase...long time ago so
    it may be just senility setting in.
