var txt = new String("Mystring");

function myFunction(theString,Position)
{

theString=theString.toLowerCase();

var newString= new Array();

for (var i=0;i<theString.length;i++)
{ 
newString[i]=theString.substr(i,i);
}
newString[Positon].toUpperCase();

var finalString;

for (var i=0;i<newString.length;i++)
{ 
 finalString=finalString+newString[i]
}

return finalString;

I think this should work.

function convert(myString, positions) {
	// positions should be a array of indexes
	// example: convert("some string", [2, 3])

	myString = myString.toLowerCase();

	for (var i = 0; i < positions.length; i++) {
		myString = myString.substring(0, positions[i - 1]) + myString.substr(positions[i], 1).toUpperCase() + myString.substring(positions[i + 1]);
	}

	return myString;
}
