    How can I force the first letter of proper name fields to be capitalized?

    We have trouble with registrants failing to capitalize the first letter of their first name or last name. How can I force this capitalization?

    You can inject the following CSS code into your form and it will take care of for you.

    #first_40, #last_40{

        text-transform :capitalize!important;


    The name will be automatically capitalized when it is entered in the field.
