That's an interesting possibility, but I looked at the logs and I suspect it
comes from Google as referrals. I will recheck because I suspect you might
be right. If people copy-and-paste addresses though, it is unlikely that
conversion to lowercase will be involved.

I thought about it many times, but there are too many pages involved. I
can't think of an easy way of automating this either. Addition by scripting
would lead to explosive .htaccess growth.
Anyway, I'll check the logs again.
Thanks very much for the time,
