    Capitalisation should have no effect. Both the tag/attribute names and their "values" can be capitalised in a regular HTML (4.01) file. See also the W3C example here:

    Rules for robots.txt files are more strict...

    No effect at all. Both HTML code and meta tag parameters are case insensitive.
