ucwords doesn't capitalize foreign chars like öüäõ
so I need a solution, which will make "öösel" into "Öösel"
Is there a simple way to do it with regexp or I have to check all the characters manually?
If you have the mbstring extension installed, you can use the
mb_convert_case function, specifying
MB_CASE_TITLE as the
You can give a try to strtoupper() which works fine for me with French.
Sorry I hadn't seen it was ucwords...
Otherwise, this should work:
mb_convert_case($string, MB_CASE_TITLE, "UTF-8");
Aside from the other answers, which suffer from the same problems as ucwords, you might take a look at keeping this variation in your toolbox.
