You do realize that anything you put in a file so named would not work
on an Apache server (with default configuration)

The file name is .htaccess all lowercase. Never used Apache on
case-insensitive Windows so I am not sure if it would fail on such, but
it will definitely fail on any *nix servers.

Apache runs on Windows and used .htaccess, so the letter case for
Windows wouldn't matter, but that's a good point about Apache on *nix
and it should probably always follow the more portable letter case in
examples (but I think everyone probably understood this in the above
example, but I could be wrong).

It is okay, don't mean to rag on you, but sometimes these little details
can be awfully confusing for newbies.

Can I safely say that all us Windows users where puzzled the first time
a webpage locally design "worked" on the hard drive but "lost" images
when uploaded? (The we discovered the nasty habit of Windows to
capitalized first letters of file names and file extensions so <img
src="mypix.jpg"> != "Mypix.JPG")

Yes apps were particularly guilty of it, but I seem to recall Win95
"like to" make the first letter of a file uppercase...long time ago so
it may be just senility setting in.
