Hi,

I would like to standardize the Apple's proprietary autocapitalize
attribute. This attribute is widely used and it would probably benefit
the platform to have a broader support for it. The implementation cost
should be fairly low while it can be very beneficial for the user
experience with the keyboard on Mobile.

I wrote a small proposal document based on Apple's document and live
tests on latest Safari mobile:
https://github.com/mounirlamouri/html-autocapitalize/blob/master/proposal.md

I would be really interested to hear from other vendors, particularly if
they would be interested to implement it.
In addition, if Apple has some feedback about the proposal, it would be
very valuable.

Thanks,
-- Mounir
