Text Transformation


Syntax: text-transform: <value>
Possible Values: none | capitalize | uppercase | lowercase
Initial Value: none
Applies to: All elements
Inherited: Yes

The text-transform property allows text to be transformed by one of four properties:

Examples:

H1 { text-transform: uppercase }
H2 { text-transform: capitalize }

The text-transform property should only be used to express a stylistic desire. It would be inappropriate, for example, to use text-transform to capitalize a list of countries or names.
