Is any part of the data type declaration case-sensitive?

I'm having problems on one of my wikis, where using

[[has Type::Number]]

or variations still causes numbers to show links to internal pages (which don't exist). Is "has", "type", or "number" case-sensitive?

"has Type" is not a valid declaration but "Has type" is, see also Special property "Has type" and Help:Property declaration.

Number precision

Is it possible to increase the precision for a property that has type Number?

01:53, 31 January 2015

Just to clarify the definition of precision, if a property value is declared by [[Has number::123.45]] then the number 123.45 has a precision of 5 and a scale of 2.

What is the exact use case for increasing the precision and where does SMW currently limit the use of a precision?
