This has already been attended to by Jeremy.

>= domain'. Again, any comments ? 

I can believe it. From memory, the code that reads parameters will lower
case the parameter name and squeeze out spaces before searching for a
matching one, but will not touch the actual parameter value, and will most
likely do a case-dependent match on the value. Upper case and you loose.
