The normal procedure for an textbox is let the use type whatever they want, so the user can type all text uppercase.

I just don~t want that, i want to let the user type only the first character of each word uppercase, but that~s if he types uppercase.

example:

user typed      =   result
I LOVE TO EAT = I Love To Eat
I love to eat    = I love to eat
I Love to eat   = I Love to eat

so the first character is always uppercase, but the rest of the words  is lowercase if the user don~t type uppercase, but it he does type only the first character is uppercase.

I want to do this in javascript so the change will be visible while he is typing.

You need to be sure that you really want to implement that feature. It would prevent the user from being able to write "John and Mary love to eat" or "Can you tell me what I love to eat?"

change will be visible while he is typing.

This will leave the first character of any word the way it was typed (upper or lower case) but change all other characters to lowercase as the user is typing. A phrase like "JoHn and Mary LOVE TO EAT" will become "John and Mary Love To Eat". It will not however correct mistakes. So if "Can you tell me what I love to eat?" is typed in all lower case, it will remain all lower case.
