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>

Open in new window


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;
}
