Sun 25 Sep 2022 12:23:50 AM UTC, original submission:  

I have an RTF doc which has:

\par \pard \qc \sa60 \caps1 \scaps0 \fs28 Parsons Technology, Inc.
\par \pard \qc \sa60 \caps0 Cedar Rapids, Iowa
\v1 \b0 \cf0 \fs24 \kerning28
\par (next paragraph)

but it shows up as:


In fact, the entire document after that point is in all caps, which makes it look like the "\caps0" directive isn't being honored.

The HTML produced is:

<span style="text-transform: uppercase">
  <font size="4">
    <center>Parsons Technology, Inc.
<center>Cedar Rapids, Iowa
  <font color="#000000">
    <font size="3">
   <font size="3"><b><font color="#000080"></font></b></font>
   <b><font color="#000080"><font size="4"><br>

Trying some hand re-coding, as soon as I changed it to:

<span style="text-transform: uppercase">
    <font size="4">
        <center>Parsons Technology, Inc.<br>

then it looked correct when reloaded.

So when the CENTER tags weren't intermixed and in the wrong order, then the browser showed everything as correct for that page. Later in the doc, the problem occurs again where all of the text goes to all caps, but it's also immediately after a paragraph with CENTER. Again, moving the close CENTER earlier to right after the text and before other close tags so the opens and closes were in the correct order, then it was fixed too. And so on for the rest of the doc.

So basically, the problem is putting the closing tags in the wrong order (especially CENTER) confuses browsers and so the SPAN with the transform is never turned off ... or I think that's the problem.

This is for version 0.21.10, on Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS. The browser is Firefox 91.9.0esr (64-bit) if it matters. Chrome shows the same problem as a check.
