I just moved over from Win3.1 to Win95. I have hundreds of HTML files where all the filenames are lowercase letters. Apparently one of WIN95's "features" is that it utomatically converts the 1st letter of all filenames to upper case. This causes enormous problems as html is case-
sensitive and my html files are not found. homepage.html and Homepage.html are seen as different files.
Is there some option or utility that either turns off that "feature" or that will convert uppercase to lowercase letter filenames.
As i see it, I have two options
1. Either rename hundreds of HTML files or
2. Convert all the file name references to names that start with uppercase letters.
I'm sure there are a few more options I'm missing - none of them
convenient. This must have been a problem for many HTML developers who
switched from win3.1 to win95.
Does anyone know a workaround???
