Summary

Text Fields in Portal with a different instance of the same table, change case to Title Case

Operating system version

Windows 7 64 bit Professional

Description of the issue

I have a layout with a portal where the layout's referenced table is a second instance of the table used to populate a portal.  In the portal, fields with data that is in all caps displays as title case, even though it displays properly on the parent table's layout and also in portals on that layout that contain a child instance of the same table.  So fields like Contact::Title where the data in the field is "CEO" display in the portal as "Ceo"

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create two tables where table A is the parent and table B is an instance of the same table.  Create a layout where table B is the referenced table and create a portal referencing table A.  The text fields will all display as title case instead of the case contained in table A.

Expected result

Should display the data as entered and displayed in table A

Actual result

Displays text fields in Table A occurance as Title case (even when picked off a dropdown list where they exist as all caps).
