Probably a good deal more useful than many of the articles on CodeProject.
- Pfft. Coddled kids. In my day, we used to telnet to port 80, then render the page with pencil and paper-- and that's the way we liked it!
- Pshaw! Youngster. Your UID barely fits inside 16 bits. In _my_ day we had to whistle the 1's and 0's through an acoustic coupler!
Tools that support "all of UTF-8 as long as it starts with ASCII" and tools that cannot handle these three [BOM] bytes at all are not really supporting UTF-8.

Very good, Hans, but this is not the only reason: Using all caps shows that you're too lazy to bother with grammar and proper writing. That's rude to your reader(s) as it shows that you don't care about him/her and can't be bothered producing good and easily readable text.
Btw, LCase/UCase functions exist in VB/VBA for almost 2 decades (and also are present in many other languages), but this is just a technical nuances because the core statement made by Hans is absolutely/universally correct regardless of language implementation...firm 5*!
Reason for my vote of 5
Excellent advise, Hans! Digital ethics is indeed the important issue, 5*.
Just as FYI: there are several practical Letter Case conversion algorithms, described in CodeProject Tip: http://www.codeproject.com/Tips/162540/Letter-Case-Conversion-Algorithms-Title-Case-Toggl.aspx
Kind regards, Alex
