convert both strings to the same case:
index = string.find(string.lower(textstring), string.lower(word))
another solution is to use case-insensitive regular expressions, but
I'm not sure it's worth the extra coding in this case.
match = re.search("(?i)" + re.escape(word), textstring)
index = match.start()
