Dear Working Group,

I may suggest again what I proposed almost three years ago [1], to slightly modify the "text-transform" property [2] (or its allowed value combinations, respectively):

  uppercase | [lowercase || capitalize] | none | inherit

The above combination just intends to allow

  text-transform: lowercase capitalize

as well, a combination that enables grammar compliant "styling" of words so that they become, sure, lowercase but also capitalized. Thus, authors could e.g. (almost) "correct" the formatting of English headings, and it would surely benefit many other languages as well.

Best regards,
