# Fancyheaders and special pages: contents, bibliography

I use the fancyhdr package and it works in general. Unfortunately, some "special" pages' headers, like those of the contents and bibliography, seem to resist every approach to format them. They show an uppercase "CONTENTS" and "BIBLIOGRAPHY" instead of the lowercase headers of the rest of the document. How can I configure their appearance or, in particular, make them lowercase?

An example shows what I mean when you compile it:

\documentclass[twoside, openright]{report}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}

% Setup fancyhdr
\fancyhf{} % Clear all header and footer entries
\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{\markboth{\chaptername\ \thechapter.\ #1}{}} % how the chapter is supposed to be displayed in the headers
\renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\thesection\ #1}} % how the section is supposed to be displayed in the headers
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0.1ex} % Foot line
\fancyfoot[LE,RO]{\thepage} % Footer
\fancypagestyle{plain}{\fancyhf{}\fancyfoot[LE,RO]{\thepage}\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0ex}} % Redefine plain style, it is used for pages with new chapters

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents
\chapter{chapter 1}
\chapter{chapter 2}
\chapter{chapter 3}
\chapter{chapter 4}
\chapter{chapter 5}
\chapter{chapter 6}
\chapter{chapter 7}
\nocite{*} \bibliography{?} % insert your own bibliography here or comment it out

\end{document}

Search the documentation of fancyhdr for the \nouppercase command. Or alternatively use other package like titleps.
Thank you. Quick solution: replace \fancyhead[LE]{\textit{\leftmark}} and \fancyhead[RO]{\textit{\rightmark}} with \fancyhead[LE]{\textit{\nouppercase{\leftmark}}} and \fancyhead[RO]{\textit{\nouppercase{\rightmark}}}, respectively, in my example. –  Larissa Dec 29 '11 at 17:51
Simply adding \renewcommand{\listfigurename}{List of figures} works. –  Larissa Dec 29 '11 at 18:27
