Without WDF at all in the query, then "mixedCase" in query would match 
"mixedCase" in index, but would no longer match "mixed Case" in index.

I thought I was using WDF in such a way that "mixedCase" in query could 
match both/either "mixedCase" and/or "mixed Case" in the index. And I 
thought this was an intended use case of the WDF.

But perhaps I was wrong, and the WDF simply can't do this?  Is WDF 
intended mainly for use at index time and not query time? In general, 
I'm confused about the various things WDF can and can't do, and the 
various configurations to make it do that.

Thanks for everyone's advice.
