How to capitalize first line with css? ::first-line psuedo-element CSS not working


Tags: css,css-selectors,line,pseudo-element,capitalize

Problem :

Right now I've got a paragraph and I'd like to capitalize the entire first line. I've set the first paragraph to an id "firstp" and tried:

#firstp:first-line {
    text-transform: uppercase;
}

I've tried it with text-transform: capitalize but that doesn't work either. It's strange because I've managed to change the first letter (changed font size) using #firstp:first-letter.



Solution :

text-transform on :first-line is really buggy right now, see the reference here http://reference.sitepoint.com/css/text-transform

You can use this jquery plugin called linify https://github.com/octopi/Linify to select the first line and then apply the property of text-transform: uppercase
