I read the post about hyphens vs. underscore. I was wondering what you think of capital letters. Does that help Google distinguish the words better or put more emphasis on words in capital letters? www.example.com/myfile.html vs. www.example.com/MYFILE.html vs. www.example.com/MyFile.html

Because I encourage clients to use all lowercase as a best practice, I've never put attention on whether Google looks at "internal" capitals as a signal for word separation. They certainly might -- it seems like a potential relevance indicator.
So just I ran some inurl: operator tests and I'm not coming up with any positive evidence. If I were forced to guess right now, I'd say they're not using it.

register your site in Google's webmaster tool (just do a search) and there you can specify if your URL's case sensitive or not. Although (even if you do not do that) I believe Google's robot does the checking on his own and marks domain being case sensitive or not.
