The fn:lower-case doesn't necessarily apply to the search string. It  
can apply to the field you're searching, so you'd get exactly what  
you're after.

Eg. I do something like

String queryString = "/jcr:root/nen:content" + path + "//element 
(*,nen:tag)[jcr:like(fn:lower-case(@nen:tag),'" + queryString + "%')]";

The queryString I've already converted to lowercase using plain java
