Description

Most clients seem to automatically lowercase hostnames, however lynx doesn't seem to.

For example compare:


lynx -source http://DUMP.dgl.cx  # source of http://www.otherwize.co.uk/

and


lynx -source http://dump.dgl.cx  # correct - 403 error

I think the easiest solution would be to lowercase hostnames as soon as possible.. (See RFC 2616 section 3.2.3).
