I have written my HTML pages in Win31 (which is not case sensitive) and want to publish them on Unix (which is case sensitive).  My links look like "/IMAGES/pic.gif" which unix does not recognise (because of the uppercase /IMAGES)

Is there a case sensitiveHTML editor?
Is there a work around?
Do I need to name everything in uppercase?

There's a couple workarounds.  Let me make sure I understand you fully.  You developed your pages under windows3.1 and it places links with capital letters for directories.

If this is the case, one way around your problem would be to change HTML editors, as your question suggests.  You could do that, but then you'd have to learn another editor.  Another solution would be to create some soft links in your UNIX account.

In unix you can make links to directories and give them different names.  In other words you could make a soft link to your images directory called IMAGES.  This would require you logging into your unix account and using the soft link command which is

ln -s <directory name> <link name>

You can do what I mentioned above with a

ln -s images IMAGES

That'll make it so you can reference the files in that directory by either using images/pic.gif or IMAGES/pic.gif

Hope this helps.
