I was about to say that the browser should probably accept methods other
than POST and GET and then it wouldn't be so clear. But the HTML
specification clearly states that only POST and GET are valid for
"method" (lower-case for XHTML, case-insensitive for HTML 4). So, yeah,
it's the browser's responsibility to use the proper spelling in HTTP.

Case closed, one problem less to worry about ;-)

bye, Dirk
