Password protected .mac websites are case sensitive

It actually is a somewhat exceptional case. UNIX servers are almost always case sensitive. NT servers, and maybe some others, aren't necessarily case sensitive for any of the URL.

For example, if you go to msn.com (only as an example of an NT server. I swear, I don't use msn.com for any other reason) and dig for a page whose file name you can see, you can change the case of the file name, and it still loads fine.

I think the domain name portion of a URL is not case sensitive (so apple.com, APPLE.com and Apple.Com are all the same). Anything after the domain name in a URL is subject to OS-level case sensitivity.
