Hey there lord kenu ! :wave:

If you take a look at the index.css file that came with the starter files you'll see in the top body selector that there is a rule actually making this happen.

body {
  background: #e8e7e7;
  font-family: arial;
  text-transform: uppercase;
}

That text-transform: uppercase; is the culprit here :thumbsup:
