The following javascript function changes the capitalization of the folowing two nodes:

<td class="datacells" valign="top">CAM123X - INFRARED VARIFOCAL CAMERA<br />  </td>
<td class="datacells" valign="top">CAM321Z - SONY POWER ZOOM CAMERA<br /></td>

Is there a way to alter it so it only affects the text in the node after the ' - ' [space][dash][space]

<html>
<head>
<title>Zvonko &#42;</title>
<script>
function changeLabels(){
  var theForm = document.forms[0];
  for(var i=0;iE=theForm["itm_"+((i>99)?"":(i>9)?"0":"00")+i];i++){
    var theCell = iE.parentNode.parentNode.cells[1];
    theCell.innerHTML=properCase(theCell.innerHTML);
  }
}
function properCase(theLabel){
  var theLabel = theLabel.toLowerCase().replace(/\b\w/g,function(p){return p.toUpperCase()});
  return theLabel;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>

It is certainly not as attractive and only a slight modification of Zvonko's excellent code, but the following should work:

function properCase(theLabel)
{
    var sep = " - ";
    var theLabel = theLabel.split(sep);
    theLabel[1] = theLabel[1].toLowerCase().replace(/\b\w/g,function(p){return p.toUpperCase()});
    return theLabel[0] + sep + theLabel[1];
}
