Hello,

This is a followup on a discussion in march 2004 with subject line
[CSS21] CSS 2.1 text-transform ambiguity

"
The user entered text is NOT part of the
contents of that element, so should a UA apply text effects to the entered
value or not? The CSS3 UI working draft may provide a possibility.
"

So, should text-transform apply to user entered text like in text fields?

CSS 2.1, text-transform:
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/text.html#caps-prop

CSS 3, text module,
section 2.1. Transforming Text: the ‘text-transform’ property
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-text/#text-transform


FWIW, Firefox 13.0.1, Opera 12.0, Chrome 19.0.1084.56 pass this test:

http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/Konqueror4Bugs/Bug76122-Text-transform-Input-Text.html

and Konqueror 4.8.4 fails such test (but it may be failing this test for
reasons not related to applicability but to implementation like Boris
Zbarsky said in
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2004Mar/0005.html
)
