All caps: In typography, ALL CAPS refers to text or a font in which all letters are capital letters. "All caps" may be used for emphasis, though without emphasis they have been traditional in military, teleprinter, and comic books. They are commonly seen in the titles on book covers, in advertisements and in newspaper headlines. Short strings of words in capital letters appear bolder and "louder" than mixed case, and this is sometimes referred to as "shouting". All caps can also be used to indicate that a given word is an acronym.
