           Summary: I would think the pattern attribute ought to allow
                    patterns to specify ignoring case. We have a system in
                    place where users can enter product codes in (they
                    match a pattern), but also would like to match certain
                    specific strings (e.g. "freight") and want

Comment:
I would think the pattern attribute ought to allow patterns to specify
ignoring case. We have a system in place where users can enter product codes
in (they match a pattern), but also would like to match certain specific
strings (e.g. "freight") and want to ignore case. More generally it would seem
to make sense to allow textarea elements to accept the pattern attribute as
well.
