change "uppercase" in class li.header. dd, dt

Post by Talk19Zehn » Wed Jul 17, 2013 7:53 pm

Hi, "uppercase" is standard in the class li.header. dd, dt.
Please change it in "normal" or "none".

Why - please saw an excample into the category: Just one example
  • "uppercase" in this class has the consequence that capital letters are used.
    The reaction German-Language now written automatically "Fussball" instead of "Fußball".
    "Fussball" --> this again is Swiss-German and a dramatic grammatical error in Germany.
;) Thanks!

Best regrads

It affects only your forum, so you can change it for your forum. No need to change it for everyone.

Okay, - when all phpBB-User in Germany change it, than is no or never a problem into some forum category. ;)

It´s a problem "SS"--> "ß"... and not a problem by myself.

It seems you are wrong. The german language seems to explicitly require transforming ß to SS for all-caps, because it does not know the upper case version of ß (there is one, for example in Unicode). Please read http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9F#Gro ... hreibweise (German).

Okay bantu, which is partially true. If you use capital letters SS stands for ß correctly.
For the unvoiced s-sound after a long vowel or diphthong (diphthongs) writes you ß.
  • German-Language:
    Blöße, Maße, Maßeinheiten, grüßen, grüßte, Gruß, außer, reißen, er heißt, er beißte, uvm..
BTW:
And what is true, your wrote a name: one little example -> Thomas Häßler
What to do?

It affects the categories. I have found no solution, only a workaround to the discussion.

Beste Grüße... ;)

Your examples are not uppercased though. How would you write those words in all-uppercase?

If you do not want part of your style to be uppercase, as it is now, simply remove that transform. Little style tweaks, as this is, is not really "an idea".

Okay Brf,

and thanks @ All for all information. German users find it difficult in general to recognize or implement the request.

Bye and best greetings over the ocean!
