Page Layouts and <asp:Content>

I had a page layout that I liked, but I needed a slightly different version, so I copied the original, made my edits, redeployed my solution and provisioned a page with the new layout. BAM! A big fat error:

Only Content controls are allowed directly in a content page that contains Content controls.

Whats the deal? Everything looked exactly like the previous, working layout... or so I thought. The copy and paste apparently changed some of the <asp:Content> controls to <asp:content>, which SharePoint does not like. Re-capitalizing my tags fixed the issue.
