jQuery Remove Uppercase Accents

Automatically removes accented characters (currently greek) from elements having their text content uppercase transformed through CSS.


The script operates automatically on the document ready event, by selecting all the elements having their text content uppercase transformed through CSS, and by replacing the accented characters in them by their respective non-accented.

The selection is based on the effective CSS rules defining the uppercase text transformation, ie the following style rule:

h1 { text-transform: uppercase; }


.title { font-variant: small-caps; }

Currently the script transforms only greek text, but it can be easiy extended to support other languages.


Just copy jquery.remove-upcase-accents.js on the same location as your HTML file and include the following markup inside the HTML element:

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.remove-upcase-accents.js">
