I actually wondered if you could create an example and then send a link to 
the page that shows the misbehaviour :-)

Are you by any chance running on Windows? That (so called) file system 
doesn't usually differentiate between lower/upper case, and maybe that

If your only practical problem is the formatting of the title, that should 
be fixable with some PHP-code, but it'll probably require a separate mail 
to the list... I can't program in PHP (yet).

I'm guessing it has something to do with your filesystem...?
