    Yes, this can be done if it's just the email alerts (notifications and auto-responses) in which you need the capitalization to appear. However, the form's records will display whatever casing was entered by the user. Even injecting CSS to automatically capitalize (Proper Case) the entries on the form won't change the casing in the records. Currently, the only way around this would be to copy the form's full source to a web page and add a script or scripts.
