Thanks. I was going to search the Perl script, but now you have provided me
with the answer.
I had a wave of 404's (bad inbound link) which made things hard to
interpret. I made the 404 a redirection for a couple of days (Apache
re-directs wouldn't work because the link contained '<br />'), but couldn't
avoid the status reported.
I suppose I could write a rule to take a URL which contains some uppercase
characters and convert it all to lowercase. This could be done quite
efficiently and with little code involved. /However/, there is no (simple)
way of knowing how to convert a pure-lowercase URL into a combination of
uppercase and lowercase character URL, which is what I need in this
particular case. It would be as laborious as rebuilding the whole site and
slowly migrating the links... looking at an entire day of work. *sigh*
