Lower vs. uppercase metatags
From SUT at Human SpiderBot (adult oriented) on 12 June '98
I was under the impression that engines (notably Alta Vista, but I'd have to check) match lowercase with both lower and upper, but uppercase only with upper.

Thinking in reverse, an all caps metatag like "TOPIC" would be a match for the search terms "topic," "Topic" and "TOPIC," or even "toPic", while a lowercase metatag "topic" would only match the search term "topic."

Otherwise I see your reasoning. Thanks.
