has anyone noticed that google does not count file names with capitals?

eg.

www.yoursite.com/My-Product.html

to

www.yoursite.com/my-product.html

i have seen searches that even thoughthe page shows up it wont bold the keyword that has caps.

>page shows up

It will show up because Google search is not case sensitive

Google search is NOT case sensitive. All letters, regardless of how you type them, will be understood as lower case. For example, searches for "george washington", "George Washington", and "gEoRgE wAsHiNgToN" will all return the same results.

[google.com...]

More than likely the filenames aren't bolded because there's a different process involved than for scoring.

I've some jsp pages that are case sensetive, and they come up just fine - google doesn't seem to care.

Exactly! If you want to know for sure, it's more simple to use the 'allinurl' operator.
