I have some directories that I purposely made in CAPS - reason is b/c they are abbreviations, like CNN - or BBC so Id prefer for the human to see my-site.com/CNN

Anyways - would you bother putting some 301's in the .htaccess pointing to the correct folders so -

e.g.

my-site/CNN

301 redirect /cnn http://my-site/CNN

---> or just dont bother?

I guess what motivates me is b/c is anyone is lazy and is linking to me they might accidentally just type lower capped URL'S?

Why not simply use the
CheckCaseOnly on
directive of mod_speling?

Yes the irony of a "check spelling" module having a spelling error is not lost on me.

Would you recommend the same thing for a site that is having duplicate content issues? I have found the all our URL's have a capitol version and a non-capitol version on all our categories/brands. Not sure how this happened though. Would a redirect be best?

That would depend whether your site is hosted on Linux or Windows.
