LaTeX Package : mfirstuc v2.08

Author        : Nicola Talbot

This package provides \makefirstuc{<stuff>} which makes the first object of
<stuff> upper case unless <stuff> starts with a control
sequence followed by a non-empty group, in which case the first
object in the group is converted to upper case. Examples:

\makefirstuc{abc}        -> Abc
\makefirstuc{\emph{abc}} -> \emph{Abc}
\makefirstuc{{\'a}bc}    -> \'Abc
\makefirstuc{\ae bc}     -> \AE bc
\makefirstuc{{\ae}bc}    -> \AE bc
\makefirstuc{\ae{}bc}    -> \AE{}bc

The package also provides \capitalisewords{<phrase>} which applies
\makefirstuc to each word in the <phrase>, where the words are
separated by regular spaces. (Exceptions can be made for words that
shouldn't be converted.)

The mfirstuc package was originally bundled with the glossaries
package.

LaTeX2HTML

This package comes with a LaTeX2HTML style file mfirstuc.l2h which
should be placed in the relevant LaTeX2HTML styles directory and may
need to have the file extension changed, but note that some commands
may not be implemented or may be implemented in a different way.
There's no guarantee that it will continue to work with new
versions of LaTeX2HTML.
