The classic mistake is to write just ucwords($var) but that's incorrect.  ucwords() will only make the beginning letter of each word uppercase; it will not make anything else lowercase.  That's easy to work around, though: just convert the entire string to lowercase first, THEN convert all the beginnings of words to uppercase.
