2. Specification of the way capitalisation should be used, specifically whether letters should be upper case, lower case, or some combination of upper and lower case.

Most writing systems use individual letters which for the purpose of clarify can be expressed in upper or lower case. For example the Latin alphabet uses the letters a-z, which can be expressed in lower case or upper case.
