Use CSS for that :

<STYLE>
    BUTTON:first-letter {text-transform: uppercase ;font-weight:400; }
</STYLE>

<BUTTON>ahhhhhh !</BUTTON>

Take this bit of code :

<STYLE>
   P:first-letter {text-transform: uppercase ;font-weight:400; }
</STYLE>

<P>ahhhhhh !</P>

Save it under a file named  : something.html

View this code in the browser you'll see that the first A is capitlzed.

The thing is Pseudo-classe "first letter" , it means give a specific STYLE to the first letter , in this letter I use :
text-transform: uppercase  , whihc means UPCASE this letter.

Hope it helps a little more.
