why use lower-case letters in UC apps?

<p>" Use lower-case letters and abbreviate course titles to 30 characters (i.e., "Critical Reasoning and Writing Literature" becomes "critical reas & writing lit"). Then select the honors status and term type from the dropdown menus."</p>

<p>just out of curiousity, why would UC's specifically ask applicants to use lower-case letters? does it have to do something with server traffic?</p>
