Try this (or rather, one of these):

Code:
strong {
text-transform: lowercase; /* force text to lowercase */
text-transform: uppercase; /* force text to uppercase */
text-transform: capitalize; /* force text to proper case */
}

or

Code:
div.uppercase {text-transform: uppercase;}

div.caps {text-transform: capitalize;}

Are you refering to the actual field/table names themselves, OR as MJB suggested with the CSS?

Re: [Andy] style question In reply to
you got it - the actual field names and table names, i.e. username vs Username

Hi,

Well, personally I prefer "Username", over "username" .. and if you have multiple words, i.e "User_Password" instead of "user_password"

To be honest though, there is no "standard" as such. Some people even do it as USERNAME or USER_PASSWORD (not my cup of tea though =))

Cheers

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/...on_%28programming%29

You usually don't put delimiters between words when you do camel case (eg. UserPassword).
