I think that Google's censorware has a bug!  Tiananmen and tiananmen should
return the same results according to Google help:

http://www.google.com/help/basics.html

Capitalization 

Google searches are NOT case sensitive. All letters, regardless of how you
type them, will be understood as lower case. For example, searches for
george washington, George Washington, and gEoRgE wAsHiNgToN will all return
the same results.

PS.  Don't anyone tell the Chinese government about this Google issue! ;-)

Capitalize the T.  Tiananmen is a proper noun.  Then compare the results.

http://images.google.com/images?q=Tiananmen
http://images.google.cn/images?q=Tiananmen

Look any better?
