Automated correction of impropper IsIn tags[edit]

Swept in from the pub

I have been doing some searching and some corrections on IsIn tags on articles trying to get all the articles to have proper breadcrumb navigation. One of the most common mistakes I find is an incorrectly written tag. The most common mistake is having the tag written as "isIn", missing the capital "I" on is. First, is there reason for this? Second is there a way to have a bot or another automatic way to seek these out and fix them? It is quite tiring to do one at a time. Thanks Sirtrebuchet 01:56, 30 April 2009 (EDT)

What is the problem with the lowercase i? Doesn't WikiMedia automatically treat the first character in such expressions the same either way? --Peter Talk 01:58, 30 April 2009 (EDT)
I may have been hasty in condemning the lowercase "i". I don't know how mediawiki handles the first characters, but this glitch I am experiencing may simply have been due to the methods I am employing to detect faulty IsIn tags. So the consensuses is that mediawiki parses "isIn" exactly the same as "IsIn"? If so that would be good to know. Thanks. Sirtrebuchet 02:43, 30 April 2009 (EDT)
Yes, the first character of any page name (including templates) is case-insensitive, so "isIn" and "IsIn" are treated identically. Jpatokal 02:51, 30 April 2009 (EDT)
Great, Thanks for clearing that up! Sirtrebuchet 09:45, 30 April 2009 (EDT)
