That's not an issue at all. The browser is responsible for following 
the HTTP spec and so it should use the method attribute to tell 
whether to POST or GET the request but it has no reason to care 
whether you spell that post or POST or Post or POst or PoSt or all 
the other combinations. It would be a very sloppily written 
user-agent that took the form's method attribute and copied it's text 
into the HTTP request.
