Canonical Tags And Dupe Content

This should fix the problem correct?

I don't think you need to force an upper or lower case.
I think your programming guys need to get this code on the top of every page:
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.yourwebsi...ther-page.html" />
and 'another-page.html' will automatically change depending on the exact URL on the server.

It'd be better to:
- only use lowercase (or one case)
- redirect other versions to the version you use
- also use the canonical tag to point to the primary version.
While you are at it, check, whether the trailing slash (the / at the end of the URL) and the URL without it are also indexed as duplicates or not.

the reason I wanted to force the lowercase so everything on the webpage is uniform.
they way that they have it set up now is the canonical tag is auto generates based on how they URL is typed in.
so if you type in www.webpage.com/NeW-PagE.asp this is what the canaonicla tag is going to look like
The urls on the server are mixed all lowercase and /New-Page.asp
Trying to figure the easiest way to do this being there are over 10K duplicate title and description tags....
