Here is a variation:
    var inp = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
    for (var x = 0; x < inp.length; x++) {
        if (inp[x].getAttribute("type") != "text") {
            continue;
        }
        inp[x].value = inp[x].value.toLowerCase();
    }

In css here is a working sample using a class you can attach to any element (div, p, span, li) http://jsbin.com/eferow/1/edit

code
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <style>
    .lowercase{text-transform: lowercase;}
  </style>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>JS Bin</title>
</head>
<body>
  <div><span class="lowercase">CONVERT THIS,</span> NOT THIS</div>
</body>
</html>

Serverside languages will have this property as well.  If you need to do mixed case, doing this serverside might be better, but this is quick and easy.

I believed you asked how to change TO UPPER CASE:

// Function to change case of input box value
function changeCase(el)
{
    var convertMe = document.getElementByID(el).value;
    var converted = convertMe.toUpperCase();
    document.getElementByID(el).value = converted;
}
