Chrome text-transform bug


For years, I have been using Chrome as my default browser for development and regular daily browsing. The main reason is it is fast and always up to date! Nonetheless, yesterday I found a bug (missing support) for text-transform CSS style rendering on Chrome.

Let's say your text is in Dutch, Greek or Turkish and you applied text-transform: uppercase style to make the whole text uppercase. While rendering, Chrome does not care which locale your text is in, it just assumes it is in English!? On the other side, Firefox and IE renders the text correctly.

Here is the compatibility chart:

You need to specify html lang attribute to make the transformation locale agnostic. I hope Chrome will fix this bug soon.
