    Useful, but does involve the installation of a third party program. Typically, we can assume that users will be using a word processor (for the sake of my argument, MS Word, which is commonplace on most office-based computers and a high % of home users’ machines) – and that has an in-built shortcut (Shift + F3) to alternate highlighted text between upper and lower case.
