I believe that’s an iOS thing going on there. In the attempt to be Mobile Friendly it’s auto-captitalizing the first letter of a new line or new entry. Just clicking the uppercase key on the virtual keyboard before starting to type will take care of the problem for the user. I had this same issue myself using iPhone or iPad. Where Lon-Capa contributes to the problem, I think, is the fact that the username apparently is case sensititve, which surprised me.

I've got a curious question about logging in to LON-CAPA on an iPod Touch
using safari.

One of my users here brings up LON-CAPA in order to log in, and when
entering his username, the browser wants to auto-capitalize the first letter.
It takes several passes for him to convince it to be lowercase.
This does not happen for him on other web sites - just LON-CAPA.

Safari on my Macbook doesn't do anything like this.

Has anyone else run into this problem? Is there a site-specific setting
or behavior that has convinced the browser to do this? Is there a setting
he needs to tweak to get rid of this behavior?

Just curious,
