This upper/lower case issue can be fixed by activating yhe "mod_speling.c"
already built in your Apache install. An .htaccess file can be placed
within the root of a domain or any other directory -- or the directive can
be placed in httpd.conf.

Check the mod directive on the Apache site for more info.

It works, but may cause some degradation of performance if a lot of
"corrections" are processed... it's the price to pay I guess.
