It's not just you. I would much rather see all lower-case directory names,
including the HOWTO directory. It's much more in keeping with ESR's theory that
the common UNIX directory names evolved and were eroded into easy nubs.
However, if you guys decide to keep "HOWTO" upper-case because it's already
well known, then please make the subdirectories lower-case. (This has the added
advantage of keeping the directories in an easy to follow alphabetical order
via plain-jane "ls" or most FTP clients.)
