Display information from mysql database with only first letter uppercase

Hi all!

I am storing all my data in a mysql database putting it all uppercase (so I am sure about duplicates and I can do non case sensitive search.

Is this a good idea or there are better solutions?

Now the problem is that I am building a jQuery Mobile application and all the text is uppercase.
In php I'd use a couple of commands to make all the text lowercase and then with ucfirst I'd obtain from "TEST" a more pleasing "Test".

How can I do this dinamically in jQuery Mobile?

if u want to have each word in the variable to be upper case then use the following:
var str = "hello world";
str = str.toLowerCase().replace(/\b[a-z]/g, function(letter) {
    return letter.toUpperCase();
});

Open in new window

result-->  Hello World



if u want just the 1st character then use the following:
var str = "hello world";
str = str.toLowerCase().charAt(0).toUpperCase() + string.slice(1);

Open in new window

result-->  Hello world

You could do it on the browser with just a css class:

.elem {text-transform:capitalize;} will set to lower case and the first letter of each word will be upper case

If you want just the first letter of a string to be upper case than

.elem {text-transform:lowercase;}
.elem:first-letter {text-transform:uppercase;}
