Description ingenstans 2004-04-02 03:57:01 UTC
At present, words which have had their case changed in Writer, either by hand or 
by autocorrection, revert to their original case when exported to plain text 
format. This is silly. iF i HAVE made errors of case while typing, and then 
corrected them, I don't want them to reappear in exported documents. Since we 
can't export the character attribute, we should change the underlying character 
to reflect the writer's intention. 

The corresponding bug has been fixed for MS Word (see issue 17056) but export to 
ascii and html remain wrong. I will open a separate RFE for the HTML change on 
advice from mru.

This could be a useful enhancement for ASCII export. Every first letter of a
word which is formatted with char attribute "Title" should be exported as
Capital letter. This has also been implemented for Word export filter, because
WW format does not support this cool feature...
