The thing that confuses people is that not only is the part up to and 
through the domain name is case-insensitive, but that simple pages on 
Windows become case-insensitive for the remainder simply because Windows 
is such.

And the same page hosted on Linux would be case sensitive, per 

The thing I find annoying is a host that decides that if a URL is close 
to an existing URL, it'll fix one or two "typos."  To me, it's either 
right, or it's not.  Don't change   
to  www/ and pretend it's "close enough."
