Case sensitivity of URLS

Case sensitivity of URLS
 
WWW.YAHOO.COM is same as www.yahoo.com,
becasue, DNS servers which resolve the domain names are NOT case sensitive.
 
But, URLS like may be or may not be www.google.com/help is case sensitive.

If you type www.google.com/HELP, you may get an error,
depending on the operating system of server in which the file is stored.
If the file is hosted in Linux Servers, you will get an error if
www.google.com/HELP is typed.
But, it will be accepted, if the file is stored in a server running Windows Servers.
So, it will be better to type in correct case, if the target server OS is not known.
