The good news is that the routine is no longer required. In 2004 or so, at the request of the TEI task force on P3 SGML to P4 (XML) migration, Jessica Hekman wrote a patch for osx so that (by setting a switch) its output will now all be in the correct case. This patch was accepted by the OpenJade project, and appeared in osx version 1.5.1. BTW, the reports of that task force may prove useful to the original poster or others converting from SGML to XML. See http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Workgroups/MI/#body.1_div.2 Notes -----  Except for the root element name as it appears in the DOCTYPE declaration, which is still converted to upper case. This bug was reported in early 2004, and assigned to Jessica in early 2006. I believe she is now a veterinarian, and I doubt she'll get around to fixing this anytime soon. :-( See https://sourceforge.net/tracker2/index.php?func=detail&aid=891321&group_id=2115&atid=102115 if interested.
