Hi Hames,

no, case conversion is not symmetric. It is one of the things that
surprised me when I looked at this a few years ago.

For English it is symmetric, but for some other languages it isn't
(eg. greek). 

We derived the table from the bahviour of windows servers. If you
think there is a problem, please write a test program that
demonstrates the problem on Windows.

Cheers, Tridge
