  • If you're not stuck to Computer (or Latin) Modern, the fourier package, based on Adobe Utopia, has an upright option which uses the French style: uppercase letters are upright, as well as lowercase and uppercase greek letters.

I believe \mathrm may be what you're looking for:

\[ \mathrm{ ABC} \]
