Hi Pablo, Thomas, Ankit, all,

It seems we may have two contradictory aspects:

-1) HTML is not case-sensitive, so the domains taken of meta-keywords need to be mapped in a case-insensitive way.

-2) We can't know for sure if the MT system will be case-sensitive or not (We can in our use cases, but not in general).

So maybe we can do this:

- do the lowercasing when looking for mapped values in domainMapping.
- but ensure we return the values 9mapped or not) in the original case we got them.

Cheers,
-yves
