The only silly question is the one not asked..  =)

I don't think that filenams are really 'standards' per se.

uppercase/lowercase really dosn't matter to the system that's using them,
unless it's a case-sensative environment.  if your filename is .GIF then
make sure it's uppercase in the document...  if it's .gif make sure it's
lowercase in the document..  everything else (including case) is handled by
the browser at the time the document is translated.  Most of them have a
built-in case-handling system.
