Tuesdays Totally useless bit of information – Upper and Lower

 

Upper and lower case letters are named ‘upper’ and ‘lower’, because in the time when all original print had to be set in individual letters, the ‘upper case’ letters were stored in the case on top of the case that stored the smaller, ‘lower case’ letters. The proper term for upper case letters is “majuscule” and for lower case it’s “minuscule”.
