#332 html: 'Name' and 'Synopsis' headers not in uppercase letters

output: HTML
XSL (399)

The following is a minor bug: Processing a refentry
source with HTML stylesheets leads to headers 'Name'
and 'Synopsis'. In accordance to the Linux Man Page
Howto and the manpage stylesheets, these headers should
be in uppercase letters: 'NAME' and 'SYNOPSIS'.

Regards, Daniel

    HTML ain't man pages :) The HTML stylesheets for handling
    Refentry do not necessarily attempt to adhere to guidelines
    about formatting of man pages. They are separate formats,
    with separate conventions. You can get uppercase in HTML
    output using the CSS text-transform property. But I guess
    we can add an option to output uppercase for Refsect1
    headings in HTML, though the default will remain for them
    to retain the same case as they have in the source.

    This is a style issue. We have moved away from hard-coding styles or even from providing stylesheet options for tuning styling. The proper place to do it is with CSS.
