Remove Uppercase Accents

Description

Remove Uppercase Accents is a WordPress plugin that automatically removes accented characters (currently greek) from elements having their text content uppercase transformed through CSS ( with { text-transform: uppercase; } ). Currently the script transforms only greek text, but it can be easily extended to support other languages.

Why you would need this: For example, in greek there are accent marks that denote in which syllable you put the stress on when pronnouncing a word. However, when words are written in all UPPERCASE, those accent marks are removed. This rule is not followed by the aforementioned CSS rules, as they just use the corresponding uppercase unicode character.

The plugin is based on jQuery Remove Uppercase Accents for Drupal 7 which, in turn, is based on a JS script released under GPL license on github.

Features

  • Automatically removes accented characters from text content uppercase transformed through CSS.

Installation

  1. Upload the Remove Uppercase Accents plugin to your website and activate it.
  2. That’s it. The plugin works out of the box and no special actions needed on behalf of the site administrator.

I use “text-transform:uppercase” in greek text but I don’t see any accents

Then you are probably checking the page with Firefox, which at the moment is the only browser properly supporting greek accents. Try viewing the same page with Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera and you will notice the difference.
