text-transform (CSS property)

Syntax

text-transform: { capitalize | lowercase | none | uppercase | inherit } ;

Description

This property controls if and how an element’s text content is capitalized.

Example

--ADVERTISEMENT--

These style rules make
h1 headings use only uppercase letters, while the first
letter of each word in h2 headings will be
uppercased:

h1 {
  text-transform: uppercase;
}
h2 {
  text-transform: capitalize;
}

  • lowercase

  • none
