The syntax of the DOI string is: DIR"."REG"/"DSS
DIR is the Directory Code assigned by the International DOI Foundation,
REG is the Registrant Code assigned to the Registrant by the International DOI
Foundation, and 
DSS is the DOI Suffix String which is assigned by the Registrant.
There is no limit on the length of a DOI string, or any of its components.
Legal characters are the legal graphic characters of Unicode.

DOIs are case insensitive. All DOIs are converted to upper case upon
registration, which is a common practice for making any kind of service case
insensitive. The same is true with resolution. The DOI syntax standard
(ANSI/NISO Z39.84-2000) allows DOI suffixes to be case sensitive.
