    Comments on CSS (but not how-to questions) should be directed to
    the www-style mailing list at, not unicode:

    Keep in mind, however, that CSS only affects the presentation;
    form data will be sent as it is actually entered whatever the
    value of text-transform might be for the field.

    You might want to take a look at the Web Forms 2.0 specification drafts.
    A web browser could very well auto-correct input given in constrained
    form fields.
