On such documents (driving licenses, passports, etc.), the matter is
normally settled solomonically by using all capitals.

BTW, I see from my passport that this does not fix all problems anyway: the
Irish Gaelic version of "REPUBLIC OF ITALY" has a lowercase "h" although it
is all capitals. (Note for Yankees: yes we have all member states' official
languages on EU passports).

I though it was "La Coruņa" (in Castillian) or "A Corunha" (in Galician).
