Uppercase/Lowercase using jQuery

//Lowercase
$('jqueryselector').val($(this).val().toLowerCase());
 
//Uppercase
$('jqueryselector').val($(this).val().toUpperCase());

Capitalize using CSS

If you wanted to capitalise first letter of each word you could do this by using CSS.

.capitalise
{
    text-transform:capitalize;
}

Then attach it to the element.

$('jqueryselector').addClass('capitalise');
