It can be dealt with in various ways in CSS as it is. The question is why
the designer chose to apply capitals, the purpose behind it, and how that
should be appropriately internationalised. For instance for Cherokee you
may want to lowercase instead of upercase, assuming this is wise. Other
languages you may want to embolden text, Italian it, underline it, change
colour, change interchanged or integral heme spacing, etc .

Ultimately it's a question of whether you want a single UI design or a
language responsive UI design.
