Spence, As per Write Pro standard behavior, I am getting the right text. But, this standard behavior seems more like "What you see is what you don't get". You see "UPPERCASE TEXT". Hand the data off to another program and you can get "Uppercase Text" or "UPPErcase Text or "upperCASE

Pat, ST Get Text shows the tag in a regular text area: style="text-transform:uppercase", so maybe there is a way to strip the tags and then put the text back into a styled object. I can see someone writing a utility one day for a customer who needs thousands of documents fixed. Thanks,
