bibcode identifiers are case-sensitive.  For the jjjjj part of the identifier,
the case provides some information: all letters are lower case for conferences,
while for journals the first letter is always upper case and the other letters
are mixed case.  For the l part of the identifier (14th position), the case
also provides some information, even though it does not distinguish between
different bibcodes.  Lower case letters are used for issue numbering, while
uppercase letters are used for unduplicating bibcodes and for Letters pages.
