It's a bad practice to get into the habit

  Forum Editor 11:12 13 Nov 2004

of not worrying about case sensitivity when working on the internet. You'll run into difficulties if you habitually mix upper and lower cases - for instance, a particluar host may have one client called "Smith" and another called "smith".

You'll also get better results from most search engines if you use upper and lower cases correctly in your search terms.

In general terms people (like me) who have used the internet for many years tend to stick to a lower case convention with file-names, email addresses and urls, I never use upper case in my web site filenames for instance, and stick to using mixed cases only when writing text.
