Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Create caps presentation of phrase?
Depending on how sophisticated your target environments are, both XSL-FO and CSS have the text-transform property that does this. I know FOP doesn't support this, but XEP does. I'm not sure how widely supported the CSS property is, though. For FO: <fo:inline text-transform="uppercase"><xsl:value-of select="."/></fo:inline> For CSS: <span style="text-transform: uppercase"><xsl:value-of select="."/></span> This *may* have less language-specific issues. (i.e. You won't have to add letters to the already lengthy transform arguments to support letters outside of the English alphabet.) If you're using Saxon or Xalan, you may want to use their extension capabilites that allow you access to the java.lang.String toUpper() method.
