bug in publishing?

I develop on a windows NT server and upload to a *nix server. Inherent in this environment is the possibility of case-sensetive links breaking when brought into production. NT is case sensetive, and *nix is not, and to compound the problem NT chooses to change any file or folder that's all caps and make it Propercase, so your "HTML "folder becomes "Html."

I decided to change this to "html" in the template family, and when I re-published, all of my files were missing from the NT server. I guess CityDesk couldn't find the "html" folder, but NT said something similar was there. It thought it published but it didn't.

To reproduce the problem, create two template families, publish them to any NT server, or probably any Windows machine. Then rename the template HTML template family "html" and attempt to republish.

Sorry, *NIX is case sensetive, NT is not.
