The lesson states:

It would also avoid uppercase text in the HTML file, which could make code difficult to read.

Does this mean it’s best practice for the entire HTML file to be written in lowercase?

Does this affect the type of text you are using? If you are using a text format that types in all caps will it lowercase them?

When writing my HTML, I use the correct grammar rules. I don’t mean I use full stops and commas all the time, I mean that I write the first letter in my element in capital and the rest in lowercase. I feel like this makes it more readable. Then, in CSS, I can style it all I want using the text-transform property

The given example is enough to understand and proceed.

<!DOCTYPE html>
p.uppercase {
  text-transform: uppercase;

p.lowercase {
  text-transform: lowercase;

p.capitalize {
  text-transform: capitalize;

<p class="uppercase">This is some text.</p>
  <p class="lowercase">This is some text.</p>
<p class="capitalize">This is some text.</p>
