  Letter case - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In orthography and typography, letter case (or just case) is the distinction between majuscule (capital or upper-case) and minuscule (lower-case) letters.
In English, capital letters are used as the first letter of a sentence or a proper noun and for initials or acronyms.
Historically the two cases were placed one above the other on a rack on the typesetter's desk and, by convention, the case containing the capitals would be above the box with the small letters, hence upper and lower case.

 The Seattle Times: Local News: Could mystery letter solve case of slain prosecutor?
The letter is the latest in a string of intriguing but frustrating developments in the case, which has been given top priority by the FBI.
The letter fits a pattern seen in dozens of anonymous or fake-name letters received by investigators and the news media in high-profile criminal cases over the years, said Fitzgerald, the FBI behavioral expert.
In the Wales case, the scenario in the letter is unrealistic because the supposed hit man is easily contacted by a woman he doesn't know, which would normally make a paid killer suspicious of an undercover police operation, said Shawn VanSlyke, a supervisory agent and behavioral expert at the FBI analysis center.

 Chain Letter Dilemma   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
It seems obvious that a person who sent chain letters to five friends is less of a criminal than someone who sent out thousands of such letters.
The penalties are therefore much higher if the number of letters or communications is higher, and penalties are especially severe for "Mass Operators" who mail out more than a thousand letters.
In this case it was an arguably illegal message, but the site administrator could just as easily be deleting messages that did not agree with his/her political or religious views, and nobody would be the wiser.

 Sample Document Examination Report   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Both known and questioned writings use entirely upper case letters with the possible exception of the "I" which may not always be in the form of the capital.
Although there is no dot over the I to indicate a lower case letter, the simple "stick" form of the "I" is used and it varies in height.
Letter spacing resembles elite or pica type in that it is non-proportional (every letter is given almost the same amount of horizontal space, regardless of its requirements).

 Letters - Glossary Definition - UsingEnglish.com
There are 26 letters in the English alphabet; the letters are the individual characters that are used to represent sounds in a written form, either individually or in combination with other letters.
The latter are the larger versions of the letters that occur at the start of a sentence or the beginning of a proper noun and the term capital letter is also widely used for them.
Lower case letters are used for the other transcriptions of the word or the sentence.

 Letter legibility and visual word recognition
The experimental technique consisted of presenting the letter string laterally displaced in relation to a fixation point such that on its appearance, the eye was fixating one of five fixation zones in the word (each stimulus string was divided into five equally wide zones of one fifth of the width of the total word length.
(1991) the ratio of this left/right asymmetry in the legibility of letter is approximately 1.8/1.
The letter string was laterally displaced with respect to the fixation bars in such a way that upon its appearance, the participant's eye was positioned on one of the five letters in a 5-letter string, or on the first, third, fifth, seventh or ninth letter of a 9-letter string.

 Lower Case Definition
A letter is a character in an alphabet that represents one, or several, phonemes (i.e., the fundamental sounds of a spoken language) and/or that is used in combinations with other letters to represent one, or several, phonemes.
Lower case became irresistible to manuscript writers because it was faster to write, it was easier to read and it conserved space on the costly parchment (which was made from animal skins and used instead of paper).
As it had already been common to make the first letter of each sentence as well as the first letter of each noun slightly larger than the other letters, it was a fairly logical progression to retain upper case letters for those situations and use lower case letters for almost everything else.

 TimsLaw.com » GUIDE to Service Letter Law - Missouri Law 290.140 RSMo - Tim's Missouri Employment Law Info Site   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
If you properly request a “service letter” and then the employer fails to make a proper response AFTER you properly requested the service letter, you can sue for damages, including punitive damages in some cases.
In a papering case, the employer may falsely claim in the service letter response that the truthful reason for the termination was the alleged “poor performance” documented in the created paper trail.
Courts tend to find that if the employer tells lies in the service letter or otherwise fails to comply with the Service Letter Law, then the employer has technically not sent you a “service letter” at all, even though the employer sent you a letter that claimed to be a service letter.

 The HooK: LETTER- Razor case going federal
No doubt many worried women are secretly snickering at the visualization of the serial rapist having his spheroids severed by the razor wire [Cover story, "Slashed: Presley's razor wire claims collateral damage," December 9, 2004], but do not underestimate Judge Bob Downer, who is a good judge and was an outstanding attorney.
Judge Downer knows perfectly well what a barricade is, but by dismissing Commonwealth's Attorney Ron Huber's small case and thus closing the door in the City General District Court, Judge Downer redirected attention to (for those who have eyes to see) the core issues.
He is leaving the door open for a stronger case to be filed in the Federal Court, which is where this case should have gone in the first place.

 London needs Holmes to solve steamy letter case | The San Diego Union-Tribune
The document was a steamy letter purporting to be from Betjeman to a friend named Honor Tracy, and Wilson used it as evidence that the two had a passionate, if brief, affair.
But as it turns out, the first letters of each sentence, except the first, spell out an insulting sentence that starts with Wilson's name and ends with a vulgarity.
Until The Sunday Times received its own letter from Eve de Harben, announcing that the Betjeman letter was false, concocted to avenge an attack Wilson had once made on the writer Humphrey Carpenter (who died in 2005 and who Eve de Harben said was a friend).

The Supreme Court agreed without comment to hear the Tucson Citizen's appeal of a judge's decision to hold a trial in a lawsuit accusing the newspaper of distressing residents by printing the letter.
The letter prompted some fearful Tucson Muslims to keep their children home from religious schools and resulted in protests from readers and a published apology by the Citizen, which also sent staff members to meet with members of a local mosque.
The lawsuit argued that the newspaper's decision to publish the letter was not constitutionally protected because it was a direct call to violence that could extend to Islamic-Americans.
