QUERYTASK and case sensitivity

What are the techniques recommended for handling case sensitivity in a query in the JS API?

The Query No Map sample is a perfect example - search on "CALIFORNIA" and it returns no results.

Is there a way to handle the situation where the user doesn't know the correct capitalisation required?

function execute(stateName) {
        query.text = stateName;

You could convert query.text to upper- or lower-case, but that doesn't help unless the actual value in the geodatabase matches. Is there a flag to ignore the case in a query?
