  • Part of the reason this came up is my XSLT can tranform the first letter of a word to upper case, but this is better done in CSS.

    I'm not convinced this is better done in CSS. Correct capitalisation of words sounds pretty important to me, and given the wide range of browers and CSS support that exists, I wouldn't trust CSS to do it reliably in all circumstances.

    I believe that on a very fundamental level any website should be comprehensible even with CSS turned off. This supports the various non-graphical browsers (lynx, w3m, speech and braille), and is friendly to the diverse range of bots and spiders we see today. There's a whole lot of scope for your site to be seen with incorrect capitalisation, simply because there are many browsers where CSS is not (or poorly) supported.

    As to your question, no, I don't know of any automated tools. I too would dearly love not to check our website in no less than eleven different browsers to ensure it looks good in all of them.
