One might expect that typing into a <input autocapitalize="words"> field would capitalize the first letter of each word.

In iOS 8.0.2, you'd be wrong.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On an iOS 8.0.2 device, visit . (Or, if my site is down, view the attached HTML)
2. Type into the input field.
3. Be very confused.

Expected Results:
The Input Field Should Autocapitalize The First Letter Of Each Word, Like This.

Actual Results:
tHe iNput fIeld cApitalizes tHe sEcond lEtter oF eAch wOrd.

This is obviously very confusing.



iOS 8.0.2 (12A405), running on a Verizon iPhone 6 (MG602LL/A)
