    When I chose a tag for my post I can write the tag using big or small capital. If I write a tag using both big and small capital I will have two different tags. Is it a difference between the two of them?

    Will people looking for project 365 not find my posts tagged Project 365?

    I think that case is irrelevant in tags

    It appears it doesn’t matter to WordPress:

    In the navigation bar:
    The Topic Titles Are All Capitalized Here:
    (On The Global Tags Page)
    http://wordpress.com/#!/topics/

    but

    http://en.wordpress.com/tag/Happy-New-Year/
    becomes
    http://en.wordpress.com/tag/happy-new-year/
    (Though The Title Of The Page Is Capitalized…)

    It also occurs to me that if you try to change a category name with an initial first letter into one with a capital letter, the software won’t allow it: it “thinks” it is the same name.

    That can happen when you import blog posts from another blog. If you used one case on one blog and the other on the other blog, your Category list will include both, but they will function exactly the same.
