So here for our text instead of doing something like vertically align or horizontally align, we're actually going to transform our text. It's …going to be changed into something other than what it intrinsically would be.…We're going to concentrate on the text in the content area as we have been…and you can see that this is the same old ordinary text that we've been having all along.…But what we're going to do is we're going to say content h1…text-transform uppercase, without touching the document source, without changing any of the text in the document,…the text will be uppercased,…purely stylistic. If we were to go back and take a look in the markup, you can see right here about tea history is all lowercase.…
If you look over in the sidebar the tea of the day and post archive headings those are…using the capitalization that's already intrinsic to the document. We can say sidebar h3…text-transform lowercase and the text is lowercased.…Again this is utterly a stylistic thing…and we're not altering what's in the document source at all.…
