When using an iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad, the shift key is normally "glowing" for the first character in an input box.  The student merely needs to touch the shift key before entering his username.

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,
