Capitalization: the 'text-transform' property

Value: capitalize | uppercase | lowercase | none | inherit
Initial: none
Applies to: all elements
Inherited: yes
Percentages: N/A
Media: visual

This property controls capitalization effects of an element's text. Values have the following meanings:

Puts the first character of each word in uppercase.
Puts all characters of each word in uppercase.
Puts all characters of each word in lowercase.
No capitalization effects.

The actual transformation in each case is written language dependent. See RFC 2070 ([RFC2070]) for ways to find the language of an element.

Conforming user agents may consider the value of 'text-transform' to be 'none' for characters that are not from the Latin-1 repertoire and for elements in languages for which the transformation is different from that specified by the case-conversion tables of ISO 10646 ([ISO10646]).


In this example, all text in an H1 element is transformed to uppercase text.

H1 { text-transform: uppercase }
