# force section and subsection to capital letters

hi Im trying to renew the section cmd to make all sections in capitals.

i have tried stuff like

\newcommand{\tmpsection}[1]{}
\let\tmpsection=\section
\renewcommand{\section}[1]{\tmpsection{\uppercase{#1}}}


but no luck. can anyone help ? :)

A simple way to achieve the result is by using the sectsty package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{sectsty,textcase}
\allsectionsfont{\MakeTextUppercase}

\begin{document}
\section{Here's à la page}
\subsection{Straße}
\end{document}


I used also textcase for \MakeTextUppercase is usually more robust than \MakeUppercase (and \uppercase wouldn't work with accented letters).

This doesn't touch the entries in the table of contents; to get also that some more work should be done.
